dzdilla_cropped

Dan Zdilla is an artist, musician and teacher from Lancaster Pennsylvania. He works in collage, creating naturalistic imagery that is at times representational or allegorical. His current work is made exclusively from National Geographic magazines and glue. He is a 2005 graduate of Millersville University with a degree in art education, and a 2018 graduate of Millersville University with a master’s degree in art education. He lives and works in Lancaster City with his wife Katie, daughter Cecilia and dog Frannie.

Collage is the ideal medium for taking an existing image and removing its original context, thereby altering the visual connotation. With my collage and decollage work I have sought to further deconstruct the original imagery into fundamental scraps and bits of formal elements such as color, value and texture. I reassemble these elements into new images; often representational and sometimes allegorical. Although this is essentially ‘painting’ with paper, I enjoy reflecting on the history and provenance inherent in each scrap. With varying conspicuousness each shred carries some of its former meaning and contributes to the depth and meaning of the new image.
As far back as I can remember, National Geographic magazines have excited my imagination. They are a rich visual record of the natural and cultural world. Using them exclusively for my collages imposes a creative constraint while being full enough of lush imagery to give me what feels like endless possibilities in creation. I never tire of flipping through thousands of pages to find just the right piece.

Brian Lehman - Reserve, Chambourcin, Blaufrankish & Riesling (2020)

My creative endeavors are carved from my life experiences.  Balancing a hectic schedule and family life, I now tailor my once large image-making habits to fit my lifestyle.  Carrying my pocket-sized sketchbook everywhere I go allows me to take advantage of every spare moment.  Waiting in a doctors office, standing in line at Starbucks, family camping trips, church services, meetings at work all become platforms for capturing what I see and hear.  

This image produced by Deerfoot Vineyards and Winery was fashioned after a sketch created the summer of 2015 when I traveled for two months from coast to coast visiting State and National Parks with my family. My sketches have come to be a visual record of my life. I strive to live by the credo, “Not a day without a line.”
