"It is one of the jobs of art to evoke the sublime. With Johl Dwyer's new sculptural works made from resin and wood the artist seems to encourage the viewer to 'take this pink or this green or this bottomless blue and hold it in your mind.' Dwyer creates his artworks as if he were conducting a little symphony; swirling his colours and pressing them against each other ... even sometimes stretching them so thinly that they become transparent."

"His works are not just surface interventions. Nor are they simply partnerships of materials that ground and tether. Dwyer's works are not minimal. On the contrary, the taut and glossy faces of his works seek engagement and encourage conversation."
