Not the landscape of observation, nor even of memory, but landscape as metaphor: landscape reforged by a contemporary sensibility, in which the example of modernist painting, personal experience, memory and desire coalesce.We may in his painting register echoes of Dybsky's Russian-Jewish heritage. The striving of the revolutionary avant-garde to integrate the artwork into the real world is echoed in the holes which puncture Dybsky's recent canvases, holes which lock the painting and the surrounding environment together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.These are not pieces designed, like much abstract or near-abstract art today, as ambient music for the corporate environment, but paintings requiring and repaying contemplation. The loving attention to surface, already apparent in Dybsky's Russian-period works and encouraged further by his Italian experience, distinguishes the eroticism of his painting from, say, the brash sexiness of a Frank Stella. This love of the surface - one might say, of the skin - of painting is a classic feature of the modernist sensibility; and Dybsky's work is a compelling restatement of the modernist first principle: that the formal elements of painting in themselves have the capacity to create significant worlds.
