About This Event

Dylan Everett – Dylan Everett\ September 2, 2021 – October 24, 2021\ \ Artist Talk – October 13th, 7pm Eastern via Zoom\ \ The Griffin Museum of Photography is pleased to present the work of Dylan Everett in our Founder’s Gallery at the museum in Winchester. \ \ Dylan Everett was a finalist in the Griffin’s annual John Chervinsky Scholarship Award, to recognize, encourage and reward photographers with the potential to create a body of work and sustain solo exhibitions. The Scholarship seeks to provide a watershed moment in the professional lives of emerging photographers, providing them with the support and encouragement necessary to develop, articulate and grow their own vision for photography.\ \ Join us online on October 13th at 7pm Eastern for a conversation with Dylan about his creative path and series now on the walls of the Griffin Museum. \ \ From Everett’s Artist Statement - \ \ The preface to Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray is a series of aphorisms about art and beauty, including the declaration that “all art is at once surface and symbol.” If all art is at once surface and symbol, I create symbolic surfaces.

Drawing from a range of references – my personal life, literature, art, pop culture – and cultural signifiers, these surfaces are loaded with symbols. The viewer is invited to decode these symbols, or at least to try. The symbols in my images often function as homages to the people and things that I love or admire: LGBTQ-identified creative figures, gay icons, and personal relationships. In one instance, this manifests as a room constructed of cyanotypes inspired by John Dugdale; in another, a grisaille room winks to George Platt Lynes’ black-and-white male nudes that remained hidden until after his death; rose wallpaper hints at the titular setting of James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room. This series of homages is held together b
