‘In this modern world where everything plays out fast and it plays out in the open at incredible speeds and just when it seems like we are all in on it and interconnected….’

― NBC news anchor intro.

Dalwood’s paintings celebrate and interrogate the history of the medium. They demonstrate an awareness of the continued significance of painting as a means of communicating the ways in which we experience our everyday existence. He crafts narratives of memory that bring together the past, present and future in a single image, forging a bridge between our interpretation of what has already come to pass and that which has yet to happen.

‘Dexter Dalwood’s new paintings depict a potent mix of atmosphere and incident, aloneness and portent. They portray situations as psychological events, describing journeys, transit and locations as though from an existential perspective. Their vision is stark, questioning, detached; their visceral sense of time and place akin to that of the modern traveller, who is at once insulated and stateless, dispassionate yet vulnerable. Randomness and stasis define the mood. Colour, form and composition are tensed, intent,describing the pores of consciousness opened. Poetry and volatility preside;the dimensions of heightened instants are transcribed in the medium of painting’.

― Michael Bracewell, writer, 2018.

To coincide with the exhibition there will be a catalogue designed by Dostoyevsky Wannabe.
