Born in Massachusetts and now living in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, artist Michael Dandley's gouache scenes continue to explore surreal almost apocalyptic imagery with an unexpected colour palette which has become something of a trademark.
“After we have touched a landscape, the landscape still has a future,” he says. “These works explore lands fatigued from human use. Echoes of today resonate within these spaces – looming anxieties of war, environmental disaster, and commonplace infrastructure give the impression that the scenes represented are not too far from our own. Many are cast in a future where people are gone, but their footprints remain. Physical structures crumble, yet emotional energies remain – depicted by surreal color and lighting. If places know they have a purpose, Dreamscapes imagines they carry that memory into the future even after we have forgotten them. The future includes the past, the human touch; it is hopeful and discouraging, a daydream and nightmare.”
