All you have to do to learn about Eric Dinyer is Google his name, and you’ll discover that he’s one of the most lauded and innovative illustrators working today. Or go to his site: http://www.dreamless.com/ He’s done work for scores of magazines, publishers, recording artists. But he’s also an exceptional sculptor.
In this piece, which he created in concert with Erick Warner, Dinyer worked with found objects, objects that he carved himself, and then a carefully finished shadowbox to frame the assemblage. The result, in my opinion, is a masterful piece of understatement. Is it a bit bleak? Sure it’s a bit bleak. That’s where his head was at when he created it, also meaning the piece is human. Those sorts of things help keep the art world in balance.
