Resident Artist Exhibit: Paintings by Lydia Dildilian
The exhibit will be housed in the EFA Building’s Gallery 193 and will be open for free public viewing from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Sept. 14. Dildilian’s paintings pose a series of questions regarding socio-cultural and human-invented systems and their purposes through her translations of layered abstractions of diagrams, maps, blueprints and binary system aesthetics into a variety of line work, grid structures, and repeated organic and geometric shapes.
From her studio in Green Bay, Dildilian has displayed her artworks in exhibitions throughout the U.S. since 2011 and has contributed to several private collections. She has published four pictorial books and has also taught various art courses in drawing and painting at Miami University in Ohio, the University of Florida and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Miami University and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Florida. More details and examples of her art are available on her website at www.lydiadildilian.com.
As ASU’s Edwards Trust resident artist in painting, Dildilian will also be the featured speaker for the 2017 Henry Edwards Artist in Residency Lecture on Sept. 14 at 3:30 p.m. in Room 101 of the EFA Building. The lecture is open free to the public.
