Artist Dexter Dalwood presents his first exhibition since joining Simon Lee Gallery this November, exhibiting a new series of works with his recurring setting, London. Dalwood’s artworks are not only created with fluid, personal, and interpretative working techniques, but they also hold historical references as well as quotations mediated in the process, portraying an unexpected narrative of the renowned capital city.
display particular sites in london, which are interpreted and reconstructed into a memory collage, with its culture, political history and subjective aspects within. The paintings depict the notion of how history can be painted, and its continuous process in the exercise of representation. The artist’s works allow viewers to continuously seek in recognising elements within the painting, giving the opportunity to build their own definition of what Dalwood has observed in depicting a certain location in London.
Perhaps Dalwood’s artistic approach gives the freedom for artists to perceive London , in order to build a new perspective of London. ‘London Paintings’ will proceed to perceive and reinterpret represented vision, forming a rich and individual language within the artworks, while producing something original in the present.
