Coming soon: The Abstract

Thursday 4 October – Saturday 10  November

Shape, colour and gestural markings are at the fore of the new exhibition at dot-art Gallery. The Abstract will be open to the public from 4th October to 10th November and will feature a double bill of local artists whose practices both reject conventional representation.

 

Emily Bartlett and Daniel John form a compelling pair; both harnessing the power of colour, shape and motion within their art through schematized compositions. Vibrant forms and punctuating brush strokes take the viewer on a visual journey across each canvas with no intended beginning or end.

 

Artist Daniel John has practised drawing and painting for most of his life. Having graduated with a first-class fine-art degree in 2003, Danny has continued creating art from his studio in Liverpool. His art often contains a scaffolding of systematic and clean structures and by layering lines of intense colour; reds, oranges and yellows, the notion of depth is consistently experimented with. Using acrylics, Danny applies controlled drips, dots and connecting lines to paper and canvas creating a calming illusion of space and dimension.

 

Emily Bartlett’s bold collection of work is pure-abstraction. Having grown up on a dairy farm in rural Dorset, Emily’s inspiration is derived from the noisy and stimulating energy of the land. Now based permanently in her Liverpool studio, Emily’s current collection showcases a responsive use of colour, her own visual vocabulary communicating deeper themes and emotions common to all viewers. By exploiting non-naturalistic brushwork and dynamic form her work is luminous with energy, a profusion of imagination and curiosity.

This exhibition starts on Thursday 4th October and runs to Saturday 10th November. Entry is free and all are welcome.
