Details:

In this painting, looping and jagging gestures in red, orange and tan move arc across the surface, offset by sections of dark green. The artist then uses a dry brush to create fuzzy and semi-transparent colors near the outer edges, giving those areas an atmospheric feel. Her intuitive process leads with color and pulls from a vocabulary of forms she develops during automatic drawing sessions.

Grasshopper 3

In this painting, looping and jagging gestures in red, orange and tan move arc across the surface, offset by sections of dark green. The artist then uses a dry brush to create fuzzy and semi-transparent colors near the outer edges, giving those areas an atmospheric feel.

In her 'Grasshopper' series, the artist responds to the stimuli of Southern California that she sees during walks, which include flowers, cacti and densely variegated neighborhoods illuminated by the Los Angeles sun.

Ariel Dill paints abstractions that include visual occlusions, hiccups and whorls. Bleary shapes spread across her canvases, with moments of movement or focus implied as if her compositions could be entered psychically. Dill’s intuitive process leads with color and pulls from a vocabulary of forms the artist develops during automatic drawing sessions. Her paintings invite the viewer to explore her anthropomorphized imagery and revel in their slippery nature.
