My Failure as a Horse: new works by Dakota Noot
You are cordially invited to the next art exhibit at Hibbleton Gallery, entitled “My Failure as a Horse: new works by Dakota Noot.” This show is curated by Charlie Arnold. The opening reception is Friday, April 7th from 6-10pm during the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk. As always, this event is FREE and open to the public.
My work acts as a code. I draw from symbols of my rural background in North Dakota, twisting and collaging them into new forms. I don’t reject my past; if anything, it haunts me. I want to translate the tension between North Dakota and California into my work. By mashing together different artistic styles, I can create a hybridized identity not just for myself but for others like me. I search for community through art and create icons for it.
Dakota Noot was raised in Bismarck, North Dakota. He graduated with a BFA and teaching licensure in 2015. He will graduate with an MFA at Claremont Graduate University in 2017, focusing on drawing and painting. His work has been shown both in North Dakota and California.
