About Face. An exhibition by Dianne Bowell
When: 15/03/2019 – 26/04/2019
by Dianne Bowell
Monday 18th of March until Friday 26th of April.
The work is a retrospective, created in new pieces.
Exploring and revisiting past paintings, projects and ideas.
A nostalgic look at memories of work, thoughts and life events.
An exploration of memory, and that part between real memories and false remembering – was it the photo I remembered, or do I really remember the events?
References are made to artists who have been influences and continue to be. Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Richter, Saville.
Significant life events are explored through painting, past traumas and experiences as well as familial situations.
through the searching investigations of fateful life events, and significant people
The abstraction of the painted surface, the canvas or paper, through the searching investigations of fateful life events, become not only about the subject or object being depicted, but become an object itself, the sides of the canvas, the colour and the drips are equal in significance to the represented “image”.
Pieces are worked and reworked, layered and overlaid, playing with scale, redaction and layering with inks, oils, glazes and varnish all explored to create pieces which are neither traditional nor safe.
All work is for sale, please contact the artist to purchase.
All work will be available for collection or delivery after 29th April 2019.
