About Dustin Pevey's work
Dustin Pevey's work is grounded in Expressionism. Expressionism first appeared as a reaction to French Impressionism, and mainly developed from 1905 to 1920. More than just an art movement, it is considered as an international tendency that encompasses a number of fields spanning from literature to art. The main idea in Expressionist paintings is to distort reality, as to vigorously depict the subjectivity of the artist. Expressionist artists were strived to convey their emotions with the use of spontaneous brushwork, textural elements and distorted figures, which would gradually progress towards Abstraction. Expressionism can be also be understood as a reaction to industrialisation and modernisation which undeniably brought about feelings of alienation and isolation, as represented in Edvard’s Munch painting The Scream. Prominent figures of the genre include Vincent van Gogh, Egon Schiele and Wassily Kandinsky.

Historical Context of United States
The United States, especially New York city, remains as a focal point that has played a substantial role in developing modern and contemporary art in the twentieth century. The idea of New York as a new cosmopolitan and highly influential art centre emerged in the post war era, and the city succeeded in asserting its dominance over Paris, which used to be regarded as the most powerful international art centre. The authority of the political and economic structures of the United States in the modern era has granted the country with a powerful influence on the visual culture of the world. Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Neo-Expressionism, Graffiti and Street Art, are influential art movements that blossomed in the US. These very movements also echoed into a multitude of variations, such as diverse forms of Abstract Expressionism, as well as East and West Coast adaptations of Pop Art, among others. Some internationally distinguished U.S artists of the modern age include Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, Donald Judd, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Julian Schnabel, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.
