Dean Wyatt creates multi-layered abstract paintings that are rich in color and texture and inspired by the landscapes of his native southwest Oklahoma. Of his work, Wyatt explains “I use landscapes as a backdrop to explore other themes. Most of my recent works depict some type of transition, whether day to night or the moving away (or toward) something. The “holes” or voids that show up in many of my works may represent something missing, unfinished business, or something we try to block out or ignore. Hard lines and texture add to the landscape feel, but also create divisions to illustrate shifting perceptions and the hidden layers not easily observed.”
Wyatt’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Oklahoma State Capitol and the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. His work was also selected for exhibition in two OVAC Painting and Drawing Biennial exhibitions.
He is active in the arts community, currently serving on the boards of the Tulsa Artists’ Coalition and the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition and previously the Tulsa Ballet.
