Soot from smoke, recycled bottles and Q-tips, who would guess that these were shopping list for equipment, to produce art?
Jim Dingilian graduated from the University with an MFA in Photography. His work has been shown in group exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver.  His soot paintings are different way of creating art, where the image in the bottle, becomes more than a painting, evolving into an art installation.  This is an extract from Dingilian's thoughts: "When found by the sides of roads or in the weeds near the edges of parking lots, empty liquor bottles are artefacts of consumption, delight, or dread."  A smart and inspired artist that uses all that is around him, to give his work more meaning and depth, becoming more than the sums of its parts, all of a sudden it's not just a painting in a bottle...
