Painting, Printmaking, Collage, Video, & Photography
Dylan Bannister is a visual artist and printmaker based out of Rock Hill, South Carolina, where he maintains a studio practice and contributes to the town’s growing arts community. Bannister earned his B.F.A. in 2016 from Winthrop University, where he then taught as an Adjunct Professor of Fine Arts, instructing on artwork documentation and portfolio organization. Additionally, he has designed web-based galleries for other creative individuals and organizations.
Currently, Bannister’s focus is on developing his visual vocabulary and building his portfolio. Bannister's work utilizes technologies of the past, and he finds the scavenger hunt of finding these now-antiquated devices just as rewarding as using them for creative purposes. His interdisciplinary approach unites contemporary practices in photography and video with traditional media such as printmaking and collage. Conceptually, Bannister draws connections between the error-ridden images synthesized by analog video equipment and the formation, storage, and recollection of memories.
