PHILOSPHY

"My many years in Japan have taught me many things. However, one that stands out and remains to sculpt how I view the Japanese approach to artistry is the cultural love and admiration for the 'Perfect Imperfection'.  An appreciation and celebration of the part that makes something wonderfully unique.”

Dwight continuously strives to fine tune his process while restricting himself by strictly using only the original materials and techniques of this age old tradition. His gyotaku prints are comprised of two materials; sumi and washi, and display an aptitude towards conveying his subjects at different perspectives and angles.  It is Dwight's wish to instill an undeniable sense of life and motion to these underwater creatures that he hopes will inspire and awe those that look upon them.
