After Order, After Disorder features animated shorts, digital prints, paintings, and works on paper by Toronto-based artist, Dylan Glynn. Glynn, whose practice is rooted in formal life drawing, has developed an ethereal style that captures a fantastical naiveté. Emotive and rich in narration, this body of work explores Glynn’s optimistic projections for the future, in which he envisions humanity’s return to a harmonious relationship with nature. In this exhibition, Glynn’s works are presented alongside historical photographs from DeGolyer Library’s special collections that echo the nuanced relationship between new and traditional media in the artist’s work.

Dylan Glynn: After Order, After Disorder is curated by Georgia Erger, the Curatorial Fellow for the Hawn Gallery. An Opening Reception will be held on Friday, January 27th from 6-8 p.m. wherein the artist, Dylan Glynn will conduct a gallery talk.

Dylan Glynn is based in Toronto and studied animation at Sheridan College in Toronto and La Poudrière in Valence, France. Glynn’s work has appeared in Vice Magazine, BOOOOOOOM, The Huffington Post, The Globe and Mail, and the Canadian Broadcasting Company and has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators, American Illustration and the World Illustration Awards.
