Dylan Bannister


Bio:

I am from the quiet town of Sandy Springs, South Carolina. I am pursuing a B.F.A. in Art with a concentration in general studio with emphases in printmaking and drawing at Winthrop University. My recent works are initiated from captured stills and clips of dated VHS recordings, which I often re-work with traditional media and techniques. Upon graduating, I intend to pursue an M.F.A. and to teach at the college level.

Artist Statement:

My work is informed by the analog video aesthetic. Fusing my fascination with nostalgia and technology, my imagery originates from captured stills and clips of dated VHS recordings. I often rework these images, allowing more traditional media such as drawing, printmaking, and painting to be the vehicle for the final piece. In using electronics such as VCR, VHS, and CRT televisions as generators for image-making, I aim to push the boundaries of how this technology can be viewed as fine art. My greatest artistic challenge is bridging the opposing forces in my work: technological and traditional, digital and physical, static and kinetic.
