About The Artwork

This cyanotype is an original work of art by Terri Dilling. It is similar to an ink drawing, but is actually drawn with archival cyanotype fluid and then exposed in the sun. Cyanotype is a process that creates a cyan blue print through exposure to UV light. It is an old photographic process that has been around since the 1800s, however, Terri's unique, painterly approach transforms a traditional method into a contemporary expression. Dilling is inspired by the beauty and complexity of the natural world, especially its structures, patterns and cycles. “I am inspired by natural elements of sun and water that help create this art” says Dilling. “And I absolutely love the color blue. I often tone my cyanotypes and expose layers to achieve a variety of color.” This artwork is signed with artist's abbreviation on front and full signature on back. It is an unframed work on paper. ABOUT THE ARTIST: Terri Dilling is a contemporary abstract artist based in Atlanta, Georgia, and she has been exhibiting professionally for over twenty years. Terri received a BA from Indiana University, a BFA Georgia State University, and has also studied visual arts in England, Spain, and Italy. She has received numerous grants and awards, and her work is in public and private collections around the world.

Terri Dilling is inspired by the natural world, creating abstract paintings and cyanotypes. See her COLLECTIONS for thematic groupings of work. She also accepts some commission work. "I am inspired by the beauty and complexity of the natural world, making reference to the landscape around me, and also an emotional landscape within. I am interested in using gestural marks and color relationships to express a mood or feeling. I want to create a calming visual space that also has elements of energy and contrast. For me, this is a way to find balance. The paintings are predominantly acrylic paint with additional drawing materials like charcoal and pigment crayon. As I paint intuitively, some elements get covered over while others are pulled forward, and the finished painting contains a rich, layered history. My artistic lineage comes from Abstract Expressionism, especially its focus on conveying emotion with bold, spontaneous marks. I also relate to the softness of Impressionism, with lyrical landscapes full of color and light. I combine these things through my own visual vocabulary to give the work a contemporary context, dealing with the duality of interior and exterior realms."
