As a visual artist, Dilling his works consist in sculptures of a synthesis in nature with technics and paintings in abstraction.
Dilling his Color Field paintings are in a contemplative way of thinking based on mutual connections, the geometric shapes and structures to create an image are clear and concrete.
Color field painting is a style of abstract painting that emerged in New York City in the 1940s and 1950s.
The world of his colors is decided and essential, he constructively selects subtle contrasts for his base colors while at the same time creating opportunities for playful hues in his choices of paint.
The result is that his contemplative work of coloring only invites to the extent that his absolutely abstract painting within construction works will serve to stimulate or enhance the natural desire for his imagination within 3D colorworks. Or in his own words : "I can be touched by the saturation of a color (brightness) within a simple line.
Dilling shows in his technique that he notices and understands the cohesion in nature.
In his most recent work, Dilling experiments with the Color Theory through interaction of color by Josef Albers and from Johannes Itten’s, both are color teachers at the Bauhaus University Weimar (Germany). Here Dilling's focus is on further minimizing and abstracting his earlier graphic Art-Deco painting. In this he uses simple geometric forms consisting of minimalistic lines through geometric calculations based rectangles, triangles and diamond patterns forms. The 3D reliëf construction works captures the daylight and creates a shadow with it depending on the time of day, giving the work a different dimension every moment of the day.
For his environmental work, Dilling uses a variety of recyclable technological components, such as metal, wood and electrical components like copper wire, which he transforms into all kinds of objects to our relationship with nature.
Dilling gets his inspiration out of and with materials of nature often with an ironic touch referring to the current energy transitions.
Dilling masters many disciplines: visual forming, drawing-technics, mixed media, abstract painting, construction work in relief and collage techniques, electrical engineering, graphic work, geometry, hand skills as wood metal working, photography and are an expert in the airbrush technique since the '70s.
Contemplatively Dilling tries within his photography-work to capture reality as he sees it, to reflect on being able to perceive even more intensely for his awareness in the paradox with the beauty of tenderness between nature and technology.
