Artist working in oils, acrylic and clay. I’m interested in how words effect an image and vice versa in art. I’m also applying some of my learnings from poetry - such as letting the work form itself. Although, of course, looking back, every mark, every word has been a decision, conscious or not. Some of the recent work has been about giving in to chance, letting a pot be decorated by fire and smoke in smoke firing.
I have a fascination with rubbing back, abrasion, erosion. Something that has developed with my recent working with oxides and slips on clay.
I’m often inspired by relationships, current situations, things overheard, things misheard.
My name is Dillon Proby. I am a young rising artist out of Phoenix, AZ. My work is really inspired by the black community. My goal is to unite people of color and of all races through visual images. I like to touch on topics that have shaped our black community. As well as events that are going on today.
