Roz Dimon has been an innovator in the fine art world of New York City for more than thirty years. She studied in Italy while at The Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia in Athens. She moved to New York in the early 80s to begin working and training in digital media.
Dimon has exhibited white-on-black digital drawings of guns printed on canvas at Carter Burden Gallery. The inverted drawings purposefully create an x-ray-like illumination of the subject matter, if not for the viewer to analyze the inner mechanics of the weapon than to see what the object represents to the individual. The employment of digital media unambiguously couples with the subject matter, the drawing of machine with a machine. Dimon explains, “An important part of my process is revealing the paradoxical co-existence of forces; masculine and feminine, evil and good, in these iconic artifacts.”
Dimon was invited to teach some of the earliest pioneering courses in digital art as a visiting Professor at Pratt Manhattan and Associate Professor of Computer Art at Marymount Manhattan College in New York. She has lectured and presented her work at early digital art institutions including The School of Visual Arts, The International Symposium of Electronic Arts, and International SIGGRAPH. Dimon's artworks are in AT&T's corporate collection at their super-computing facility and she has been supported by such notable patrons as the former Walter Liedtke, Curator of 17th century art at The Metropolitan Museum.
