Guy Diehl’s second solo show at Dolby Chadwick Gallery, “A Dialogue with Tradition,” consists of a suite of still life paintings that feature bottles, blocks, spheres and boxes. The painting’s objects make references to modern art and artists — including Piet Mondrian, Giorgio Morandi, and Robert Delaunay — but Diehl’s technique alludes to 17th century Baroque painting. A major theme of the exhibition is “art about art,” but the show is also a visual feast that offers viewers a chance to contemplate transparency, the sparkle of light on glass, and the mesmerizing illusion of three dimensionality that a only a highly skilled painter can achieve.
I recently interviewed Guy Diehl and asked him about his background, his ideas and his works as painter, muralist and tapestry artist.
