Megan Dyck

Sessional Instructor, Drawing

Drawing upon the subconscious perceptual lens of semi-trance states, themes of magical realism, and notions of the uncanny, Megan’s figurative works depict individuals engrossed in indistinct, latently familiar gestures — neither sensual nor mechanical. Fragmented and self-referential, these characterizations are devoid of coherent settings or explicit narratives. Within this liminal realm, her imagery explores states of reverie, disassociation, and the tendency of the distracted mind to oscillate between such divergent modes as sardonic rumination and hedonistic obsession while performing routine perfunctory tasks.

Aside from her studio practice, Megan holds a great passion for her work as an educator and researcher: teaching both painting and drawing courses at AUArts.
