These recent works show Dylan's progression as a painter and a new maturity; the artist boldly depicts vast skies and changing light with confident, broad brushstrokes in a sheer celebration of colour. Dylan renders the changing face of America with ease; from the neon illuminations of a late-night ice cream joint in Nowhere and Anywhere, to an obscured Night Train, whose glowing headlights approach from the distance. New Orleans Street musicians; an abandoned jetty winding out to a deserted lake; the monolithic sweep of a bridge dissecting the sky overheard; all continue to create a panoramic vision of America.
