Dennis Dykema is an artist based in Spirit Lake, Iowa.

About the artist: "I have been a painter since 1964 and I taught painting at Buena Vista University for 31 years.  Since the mid 1970s my work has embraced the landscape as its subject, the interpretations of which have ranged from fairly referential to expressive."

About his recent work: "This group of work presents my recent landscape interpretations.  I am concerned with the intersection of formal and dynamic elements as I find them in the environment as they reveal the texture and structure of the subject."
