“The míníature scenes I depíct are of locatíons on the edge of suburbía whích seem mysteríous or even slíghtly menacíng despíte theír commonplace nature. The bottles add to the ímplíed narratíves of transgressíon. When found by the sídes of roads or ín the weeds near the edges of parkíng lots, empty líquor bottles are artefacts of consumptíon, delíght, or dread. As art objects, they become hourglasses of sorts, theír draíned ínteríors now ínhabíted by dím memoríes” Jím Díngílían says about hís art.

“The miniature scenes I depict are of locations on the edge of suburbia which seem mysterious or even slightly menacing despite their commonplace nature. The bottles add to the implied narratives of transgression. When found by the sides of roads or in the weeds near the edges of parking lots, empty liquor bottles are artefacts of consumption, delight, or dread. As art objects, they become hourglasses of sorts, their drained interiors now inhabited by dim memories” Jim Dingilian says about his art.

It’s truly a wonderment.
