Dilling’s autonomous visual art is perhaps best characterised by technology-based abstract construction works. His work are always inspired by the beauty of the parallels between nature and technology in terms of patterns, structure, dynamics, colours and lines.
Bringing geometric shapes back to their basic essence is key in his approach. As a result, Dilling’s work invite only to the extent that his abstract paintwork will serve to induce or intencify the viewer’s natural desire for comtemplation, meditative encounter or by imagination.
Or in Dilling’s own words: “I can be moved by the simplicity of a line with the pure intensity of a colour.”
In all his works of reliëfs, objects, constructions and environments, aesthetics play a crucial role, which is always achieved through minimalism and abstraction.
In his most recent work, Dilling experiments through geometric abstraction like concrete or systematic compositions together with the effect of colour-tones and contrasts in particular, inspired, among others, by Wobbe Alkema (De Ploeg) and Theo vanDoesburg (DeStijl) and also the Bauhaus University Weimar (Germany) with the colour teaching by Johannes Itten. Here, Dilling’s focus is on the further minimisation of his graphic Art-Deco work. To this end, he uses simple geometric shapes consisting of lines that form calculation-based rectangles, triangles, and diamond patterns. The 3D-reliëf works catches the light in manifold ways and by a shadow with it, depending on the time of day, which makes them look differently each time you see them.  
For creating his art, Dilling uses a variety of recyclable components, such as, for example, metal, wood, and electrical thread, which he transforms into all kinds of objects. For inspiration, Dilling draws from nature, science, and engineering, while sometimes referring to environmental or climate issues, but never in a sombre tone and always in with an ironic touch.
Dilling masters many disciplines: mixed media, constructivism, geometric abstraction, graphic art, photography and painting. He is an expert in the airbrush technique. Within his photowork he tries to capture reality as he sees it, thereby encouraging the viewers to contemplate what they are observing and to become aware of the link between nature and Technology.
