About

Vincent Dion's painterly abstractions mimic various printed techniques which reconcile and affirm the introspective presence of the hand. Dion’s use of luminous color becomes his essential means to ascertain form through memory.

His intention is to create symbolically resonant artworks that are neither
abstract nor representational. This is work generated by a need to explore
elemental emotions while balancing and reconciling the contradiction of making work that is simultaneously peaceful and energetic. These paintings are essentially metaphorical still lives. The marks and images can evoke many objects, such as crosses, stars, nets, clocks, organic, inorganic and industrial structures or vessels. These in turn function as symbols for cemeteries, eternity, the passage of time or the duration of loss.

Dion starts by limiting my choices of colors that reference random objects. His use of imaginary imagery forms, figure-ground interchange and the integration of layers, both opaque and translucent, record a compilation of thoughts. The deliberate discipline of my formal process demonstrates energy at sober and variable speed, without the specific scale of the psychological space depicted. Each piece evolves on its own schedule. He stops the work on each painting when it looks unintentionally intentional.


Vincent Dion has been featured in exhibitions at The Aldrich Museum, The Barnum Museum, Real Art Ways, The Art in Embassies program, and is currently featured in Volume 7 of the West Marin Review 2016.
