Michael Dinges Artist Statement:
Is it true that the more things change, the more they stay the same? No one can predict the future, however it is clear that without art that questions the trajectory of unrestrained, hyper-ambitious capitalism, and the group-think that accompanies it, we will become more susceptible to it’s ill effects.
In my art practice – by drawing parallels through the use of scale and materials – I want to ask the viewer to contemplate their own relationship to their social and physical environment. The human species, as we know it, is under tremendous pressure to conform to conditions that exploit our fears and needs. Will we, as a civilization, acquiesce or resist those forces that try to mold us into what they want?
