Art, science and engineering has been a focal point for most of Dallas’ work. Incorporating building materials with found objects, has enabled him to see the beauty in objects that still hold onto the former functionality, essence or energy. Transforming these objects into bronze or alternative materials has helped him challenge the concept of time and the order and disorder that’s weaved within it. “There is something beautiful about the exploration that takes place in an art studio and the methodical and intentional exploration that science has; we all have common interests and different approaches in discovering its true nature and my art continually tries to follows these paths.”
