About The Artist
After we have touched a landscape, the landscape still has a future.
These works explore lands fatigued from human use.
Echoes of today resonate within these spaces - looming anxieties of war, environmental disaster, and commonplace infrastructure give the impression that the scenes represented are not too far from our own.
Many are cast in a future where people are gone, but their footprints remain. Physical structures crumble, yet emotional energies remain - depicted by surreal color and lighting. If places know they have a purpose, Dreamscapes imagines they carry that memory into the future even after we have forgotten them.
Michael Dandley has lived and worked in Portsmouth, New Hampshire since receiving his BFA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2013.
