From November 1 through November 24, Nahcotta will be exhibiting the newest work from artist Michael Dandley, titled High & Low Places. The opening reception will take place at Nahcotta on Friday, November 1, from 5-7 p.m.
Previous bodies of Dandley’s work have irrefutably proven his love of color and detail, in addition to his iterative renderings of what could be cataclysmic chaos or dystopian wildness, infused with cheery hues that seem simultaneously startling and inviting. But this newest body of work, predominantly in gouache, feels like a collection of blue prints for a fiery future, cities and building interiors subject to an unstoppable cosmic onslaught.
Currently studying for his Masters in Fine Arts in Zurich, Switzerland, this is Dandley’s third solo exhibition at Nahcotta, though he’s regularly been a part of Nahcotta’s Enormous Tiny Art shows and has exhibited in two-person shows at the gallery for years, as well. He’s also shown in galleries throughout the U.S
