February 6 – 25
Super Phat is a tongue and cheek response to the Super Flat art movement in Japan. It is an exploration of both flatness of forms and fatness of paint. This work derives from the mischief, mayhem and intimacy of eating cereal while watching Saturday morning cartoons. Suspended between the saturated visual overload of cartoon violence and the stillness of sitting on a couch in pajamas, Super Phat strives to find visual pleasure in all that is inherently gross.
Dylan Fish is a recent graduate from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Art, major in Fine Art. He is interested in community both online and in the real world which manifests itself in his work both conceptually through his studio practice and practically through volunteering and outreach. A recipient of the Robert Pope Foundation Painting Scholarship and the Takao Tanabe Painting Award, Dylan has just returned from South Africa where he participated in NSCAD’s Art in Schools Initiative and completed a three month long residency. While in South Africa, Dylan held his first international solo show at Slee Galley in the city of Stellenbosch. Currently, he is the first artist in residence at the newly developed Dartmouth Bridge Centre for Arts and Technology where he is focusing his practice on painting, textiles and intermedia.
