AMPt Access Live: Dustin Vaughn-Luma @dvl
I have not yet met an artist comfortable with being stereotyped, generalized, boxed into a genre, a niche, a particular prescribed role. However, it is another, more complicated, more difficult thing entirely to BE an artist continually in progression. But that is the goal, isn’t it? To stay open, to stay fresh, to remain on the edge, to challenge oneself and one’s viewers, the world, to do the same. @dvl strives to do just that with easy, purposeful grace.
He will stand at such distance from his scene that the magnitude of life becomes the subject matter in the scale and scope of the human experience against sweeping nature. And then he’ll move in so tight, so close, to a Valley carpenter bee clinging to trowel, the sting will be a phantom thought. @dvl will shape an unfolding tension between human and nature, light and shadow, view and viewer.
