NEW YORK --- Dylan Egon, a New York City-born artist raised by two fine artists, creates sculptures and assemblages that reflect American culture, whether through religious or monetary iconography. A New York Times review once referred to his work as “sites of cultural compression, fetishization and wonder.” Egon was last featured by Hi-Frustose in 2011. Originally unintended for public consumption Egon’s seamless collage assemblages, compositionally based behind glass or within boxes, are complimented by his bold, graphic screen prints. Revolving around the theme of American culture via a subversive dive into vices and consumerism, the work reveals connections between ‘found’ objects by their proximity and placement to one another, revealing patterns and symbology otherwise lost when free standing.
