"I had a new clarity of how midwestern I was, and what the midwest looked like. I got really excited about something that had seemed very ordinary to me."
In Waving Goodbye from United States Artists Assembly in Chicago, artist Deanna Dikeman guides us through her photography, billboard and poster projects. Her unassuming work, while humble is rife with intention and artful curiosity, relatable and resonating. Based in the Midwest, she explores the themes of family, childhood memories, dance, fashion, lost and found, life and death.
