The Liverpool Collection 2023
Why do we love Liverpool? Well let us try and count the ways; The football? The Docks? The Victorian Sefton Park Palm House? The sky-scraping Royal Liver Building? Perhaps you are more in tune with the music down Matthew Street? Obsessed with the shops in Liverpool One? A foodie for the worldwide cuisine offered on Bold Street?
Or maybe you love what we show here at dot-art Gallery, the art!
Degrees of Abstraction
Degrees of Abstraction brings together three abstract artists, Hilary Dron, Jessica Slack and John Sharp; each pushing the boundaries of gestures, geometric and natural forms. Abstract art can trick the human eye, as it searches for form and representation, and unlike figurative art, can evoke emotions through colour and shape. This show of large, vibrant paintings closes the door on reality and centres you in the realms of abstraction.
SPACE, LINE & COLOUR 2014-2023
John Petch’s work investigates the relationship between line and space. Challenging how the brain perceives and makes sense of the difference between what is understood and unfamiliar. I began painting in the mid 1960s moving from Op Art to Geometrical Abstraction being inspired by geometric imagery and pattern.
Petch’s paintings invite the viewer to be drawn into a conversation from a simple statement of pattern to the relationship between art and mathematical special awareness.
The Kitchen Table
Paying homage to the classic still life genre of art, the artists in this exhibition The Kitchen Table capture the stillness and beauty of this style. The Kitchen Table features quiet still lives of homely, domestic settings and the peaceful moments found in them. As a central focal point of the home, the kitchen table hosts solo dinners, family meals and conversation over cups of tea. A place of exchange and production of meals, food and memories. Race, Dereli, Ashcroft and Kamalian compose simple scenes focusing on arrangement of objects, colour and form.
‘Reflections’ is open to the viewer’s interpretation of the word. Some may envision sky reflected in bodies of water, mirror images or perhaps are drawn to a more personal reading of inward-looking moments of reflection. The artists in this exhibition have interpreted the theme through these various lenses and offer up their diverse artistic approaches through portraiture, landscape and photography to support the viewer’s own contemplation of what ‘Reflections’ mean to them.
Around The World in Black & White
This exhibition from dot-art Artist Members transports us ‘Around the World in Black & White’, stopping off in Spain, Greece, France and many more iconic destinations. Taken from their travels, the artists in this exhibition share with us some of the delights our world has to offer, from civilisations gone before to buzzing cities.
This group show combines the geometric style of John Petch, the graphic nature of Susan Brown’s lino prints and the loose pen and ink sketches from Steve Bayley. All coming together under the theme of global landmarks and making a monochrome statement.
The exhibition ‘Icons’ is a star-studded celebration of the pop culture icons of our time, featuring portraits of influential 20th and 21st Century figures from the worlds of music, film and more.
Juliet’s eye catching, vivacious portraits of pop culture icons are created in her distinctive vivid style, with vibrant acrylic paint and bold, energetic brush marks to capture the very essence, personality and life force of these adored legends.
“The sea is as near as we come to another world.” – Anne Stevenson
High tides and rolling waves – take in the wonder of our ‘blue world’ through paintings and photographs in ‘The Sea’. The great beauty of the deep can represent many things; endless possibilities, brewing storms, a calm horizon, or a place of pollution – the artists in this exhibition take on some of these concepts in their artwork.
The Liverpool Collection 2022
The Liverpool Collection is an exhibition packed with artistic perspectives on the beautiful city of Liverpool.
As our bustling and vibrant city returns to pre-pandemic times, so does a sense of normality. But as we know, things are never stable, as demonstrated on the political and economic stage over recent months. We hope Christmas joy and a sense of reflection as we wrap up 2022 will be found for our visitors in our annual Liverpool Collection exhibition, with visual reminders of the beauty and creativity in our own local community.
Other Points of View
Other Points of View is an exhibition by Yorkshire born David Brightmore featuring original large-scale paintings spanning from his daily scenery on passages through Wales and more recent pieces responding to the connectedness of people through the spread of the covid-19 pandemic. David’s bright palette and talent for developing energy and movement make mesmerising paintings.
Flora, the latest exhibition at dot-art gallery explores the historical and contemporary representation of flora, fauna and the style of still life. Each of the artists in this exhibition interprets through their uniquely developed style the organic curves and soft folds of flowers and leaves that we place in vases or plant in our gardens.
Clare Chinnery adds a contemporary pop of colour with abstracted roses and pansies dripping down the canvas. Andrew Sherriff offers a traditional observational view with his flower studies, having a background in life drawing and working tonally with light and shadow, adding surprising backgrounds of textured swirls. If these two artists are on a scale of style well then Grahame Ashcroft sits in the middle with his shapely compositions of close-up flowerpots and planters, all in zingy bright colours but true to the form of the flower species he analyses.
“The Interior” exhibition features two contrasting Liverpool artists; Ali Hunter with her inky and illustrative works on paper and Lorna Morris who creates immense realism in her tranquil paintings.
Both artists, though different in style, do share one thing: their subject matter of “The Interior”. Highlighting sanctuaries, reading nooks and often overlooked spots in our own abodes, these art works celebrate the ordinary and moments of stillness in a room of one’s own.
Trees Through Time & Seasons
This exhibition consists of Hazel Thomson’s fascination with the passing of time and seasons through our natural world. Hazel focuses her lens and hyper-realistic paintings on trees as they adapt to their surroundings; shedding and sprouting leaves, exposing and enveloping branches as winter turns to spring and spring into summer.
Hazel says: “I study and observe our environment through my passion for trees, right down to the smallest detail, which gives me an intuitive instinct on how to add the pure beauty of nature and the spirit of the natural world to my work.
Time is a strong factor for me, whether it’s night or day or the different seasons. I like to merge the different seasons and times to contrast and show the real change our green spaces go under. To create a scene, I need to add emotion, textural feel, and a sense of peace, this gives me full satisfaction, then I know the painting is complete.
My work has narratives of realism, contemporary and impressionism. Look closely and you will understand how all these styles come together. I discovered my style of painting through experimental means. Working predominantly in oils, I paint what I love; mainly trees and nature.
These paintings are textured and detailed; close-up you can see the hours of invested time and fine brush work. It is important to me that my work helps people to engage in the spiritual side of nature, to improve our mental wellbeing in this ever-changing chaotic world.”
Traces Through The Landscape
‘Traces Through The Landscape’ is a solo exhibition by Amanda Oliphant, featuring a new body of work exploring the emotions and ideas the landscape can conjure when walking through it.
The artist says: “The feeling of my footsteps upon a broken path, obstacles I go around, breath-taking vistas that stop me in my tracks, taking my breath away. The noise of crows calling or the beauty of a songbird singing, hidden layers of colour and light, the force of the wind and rain upon my face, and the reassuring warmth of the sun gifting me a feeling of content. All elements that seep into my own consciousness and that remain when I’m back in my studio transferring these experiences through paint – they are a journey of life, they are ‘traces through the landscape’.” – Amanda Oliphant

This exhibition shows a selection of paintings mainly from Nathan’s ‘Waterloo Series’, celebrating landscape in all its forms; suburban, urban, coastal and otherwise. The series was produced from sketches taken around a specific coastal area of sand dunes and lakes in Waterloo, near to the artist’s home in North Liverpool.
On The Brink
On The Brink is an exhibition on climate change and species loss in the UK, featuring 7 dot-art artists.
Each of the seven exhibiting artists has examined aspects of nature and wildlife affected by climate change and used the visual to give a face to this issue that seems too big to see yet is staring us in the face.
The Earth has always known species loss, from the dinosaurs onwards, but we are now seeing this loss at hugely accelerated rates, due the actions of humans. More and more species find themselves on the brink.
