Private View - 5-8pm Thursday 6th October
Dylan Jonas Stone is a multi-disciplinary artist known as much for his sculptures, miniature constructions, photography and puppetry as he is for his painting.
While studying at EINA (Barcelona) and at SVA (New York) Dylan Jonas Stone worked painting plants and flowers in the herbariums of The Botanical Gardens in Barcelona and The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens in New York. This sparked his love of working on a small scale and in great detail.
Some of his botanical works are now at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, Carnegie Mellon University. His documentary work ‘Drugstore Photographs, or, a trip along the Yangtze River’ (1999) was acquired by The New York Public Library.
This archive of photographs that record lower Manhattan block-by-block are an early example of his use of methodical systems in his work, an approach which is essential to his portaiture.
Dylan Jonas Stone’s enormous 12’x14′ watercolour of his parents’ bookshelves, painted in painstaking detail as if a minature, was purchased by The Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
