Dytch is influenced by the Japanese aesthetic of “sabi,” which is about the beauty inherent in the old, the decaying, and the weathered: a wooden barn door from which most of the paint has peeled, or, in her case, a trash-filled alley, or a crumbling concrete viaduct. More than the strict reality of the scene, she is interested in capturing the truth of what it says about the city.
This philosophy encourages her to strip her art of sentimentality, “prettiness,” or the “grandeur” of the traditional landscape, while still conveying the unique mood of every scene.
