DYING TO LIVE BY DYLAN MORTIMER
JUNE 3 – JULY 15
Befitting its title, Dying to Live will be made up of artworks that emerge directly from the artist’s lifelong reflections on his own mortality, which are rooted both in his deeply held Christian beliefs and in his childhood diagnosis with cystic fibrosis, as well as his subsequent struggles to survive. A recipient of two double lung transplants over the past decade, Dylan Mortimer is also a happily married father of two who has far outlived past medical predictions of his own demise.
In his paintings, Mortimer mixes glitter with acrylic medium to build up pictorial compositions that typically fuse medical references with religious iconography. Veins and arteries become the branches of a Tree of Life, while surgical scars are transformed into heavenly portals. Balanced between the sacred and the psychedelic, Mortimer’s paintings are eloquent declarations of the power of art to strengthen our capacity for belief.
