HEAVY WATER – Cannon Dill’s Solo Art Show – April 5th, 2013

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

Le Qui Vive Gallery is inside the Famous Four Colors building in Oakland, CA.
Heavy Water Art Show.

Cannon Dill from LeQuiVive Gallery on Vimeo.

Cannon’s dual conflict of man and nature remains evident as he works in the classic wood grain, rustic, fine line detail of work. Cannon takes on a new form as he introduces color into his palate. Between the sharp lines a new liquid, oozing between the idea of innards and substance. The colors strike and dawn the perimeters of the artist’s narrative scale. At first glance, Heavy Water becomes the feeling of the pinnacle, folksy storytelling from Cannon, leaving the title of the show to stand for the organs produced. Dictating the scale of proportions, this narrative begins to set this rule. We also gain the magnitude and importance in the large scale murals that Cannon produces; a direct translation of size within his work. The approach reprises the undertones that Cannon consistently aims for. A sense of detachment from the wonders of the simple world bring to life the harrowing dismissal of nature; present in the subjects he draws a new idea of reason, awareness & introspective thinking.
