Exhibition Visit.

I went with a group of students from Bath Spa University and The Royal Academy London to The Simon Lee Gallery in London to meet artist Dexter Dalwood, to talk about the meaning behind his London Paintings Exhibition. He said it is about finding a language for what you are interested in.

From this visit I learnt his work; is imagery about a place, a little like but not really. It is an alternative vision-not sights of London, a shift from the obvious to something else. London Paintings are a series of work over 2 years. He talked about his theme of London as a subject and his time spent in it and about other painters who have painted London before.

I always struggle with putting a title to my work, Dexter made an interesting comment that his titles do not have a direct connection.
