Catie Dillon: Remain in Light


Like the light from the sun, Dillon’s whimsical wall painting is an energizing force. It is a place to bask, explore, reflect, heal, and feel joyous rejuvenation. It is Dillon’s wish to remain here, in light and in hope, forever.

Repetitive forms and patterns — invoking ideas of meditation, continuation, and growth — echo, evolve, and entwine. Referencing architecture, stained glass windows, and the facades of tiled buildings, Dillon reconfigures existing environments into newly invented spaces. Piece by piece, this space is constructed like a sprawling map serving as a guide to a brighter future.
