Barry and I teamed up to interview local artist Dylan Fouste for the opening reception of "Time and a Place" at Anastasia & Friends. One of the things I like most about pitching in with this "series" we've sort of been doing is that I get to meet a lot of interesting people and see all the fun things that they do. Dylan does a lot of landscapes (which I like) and some pretty cool woodwork as well. Should you have missed First Thursday this week his art will be on display at the gallery for the rest of August. You can learn more about Dylan on Facebook at Fouste Manufacturing Co. and The Painted Fools Studio.
Taken from the Facebook event page:
Born to the name of Dylan George Fouste, into a very history and art oriented household, I began drawing at an early age, taking notes from my mother's own early surrealist / representational style, all the while learning to value the history and stories of family from my father. Growing up in the farmlands of Illinois and Indiana, I have been exposed to vast landscapes all of my life, and now, after almost 20 years in South Carolina, I am finding that the similarities and differences in settings serve as a mirror for the changes in my own life, using texture and words to convey a sense of singularity along with the possibility of something better, while also touching on the history that connects us and is a part of us all.
