LONDON.- Galerie Eva Presenhuber announced the representation of the American artist John Dilg.

Paintings by Dilg will be featured in the gallery's presentation at Frieze New York, and the artist's next solo exhibition will take place at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Vienna, next Spring. Dilg's paintings were exhibited at Eva Presenhuber, New York, as a special summer project in 2021, which was reviewed in The New York Times by Jason Farago:

Like Emily Dickinson with her straitened meter, like Miles Davis with his muffled trumpet, the veteran Iowa-based painter John Dilg knows the power of a whisper; his small landscapes, done in a restricted palette of thinly applied cool colors, have an intimate beauty that can only be born from restraint. Fourteen sparse, imagined views of land and water, each recently painted, each hardly bigger than a legal pad, each in murmuring tonalities of sky blue and camel and artichoke green, are now on view at Presenhuber, in a show called “Flight Path.” Together they’re as intimate and engrossing as a private chamber music concert.

John Dilg’s paintings feel like landscapes rather than being such. Dilg paints metaphors and abstractions using what he calls a mental archive of essential visual forms, drawing on memory and tonalities of color and the sensations they can convey to create an enthralling, symphonic whole that emphasizes stillness and the continuum of time. The subjects of these works are not the objects that occupy the paintings but the representation of a moment in time in itself.

John Dilg was born in 1945 in Evanston, IL, US, and received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI, US. He is the recipient of a Fulbright Grant to India, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and three residencies at the YADDO Foundation, Saratoga Springs, NY, US. Dilg’s work is represented in the public collections of institutions including the Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock, AR, US; the Figge Museum of Art, Davenport, IA, US; the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Chicago, IL, US; and Museu d’Art Contemporani Vicente Aguilera Cerni, Villafamés, ES.
