John Dyer
"A landscape is not the more or less accurate description of what our eyes see, but rather the revelation of what is behind visible appearances. A landscape never refers only to itself; it always points to something beyond itself. It is a metaphysic, a religion, an idea of man and the cosmos."

-Octavio Paz, Alternating Current

Paintings by John Dyer are both an expression of recollection and an invitation to explore. The artist’s canvas becomes a minutely detailed memory of a particular place; it conveys not only his singular communion with his surroundings but also the mystery of each location and its allure. The one overriding affirmation of these paintings is the power of the natural world to engage us.

Octavio Paz’s understanding of landscape perfectly characterizes Dyer’s paintings. The intensity of the light that illuminates this artist’s depictions of the visible world of nature demands us to respond to more than meets the eye. Associations happen - his and ours: botany, geology, and ecology; life and death; questions of existence and considerations of the cosmos. Do we just remember a place or do we recall the journey? Do we value only the visual encounters or do we also seek to see a dimension beyond appearances.
