Now on view at Open Space:
“Trance Dancers of the Open Flower”
New works by Arrington De Dionyso
March 7th- April 4th, 2015
Arrington De Dionyso will present new works on paper and vellum from his “Trance Dancers of the Open Flower” series, as well as a new body of drawings and paintings made in 2015. Arrington’s work channels the unbridled raw exuberance of Dionysian “enthousiasmos”, communicating the rapture of spirit possession within the physical form in a Utopian landscape populated by lovemaking angels, tigers, dragons and other mysterious human-animal-flower hybrid creatures.
Arrington de Dionyso (b. January 4th 1975) is a self-taught artist and musician based in Olympia, Washington, known for his leading role in the bands Old Time Relijun and Malaikat dan Singa. Dionyso’s drawings are featured on fabric prints and embroidery in Yves Saint Laurent’s Spring/Summer 2015 Men’s Collection designed by Hedi Slimane. His most recent books are “Trance Dancers of the Open Flower”, “Le Sacre du Printemps”, and “Lovers and Dragons”. His most recent 24 hour drawing performances have been at the “Festival Invisible” in Brest, France Hybrida in Udine, Italy in 2014, and “The Living Gallery” in Brooklyn, NY.
Come back for Arrington’s 24 hour drawing performance March 28th and 29th in conjunction with the Publications and Multiples Fair and Baltimore Print City
