“Art is a lie that makes us see the truth.” - Picasso
Images of old abandoned boats in melancholy setting, dancers in dynamic movement and mystical cityscapes are a selection of new paintings and drawings in this new exhibition by Bob Dawson (Unit 0, Studio 0-38).
"My subject material and genre choice is consistently varied. Sometimes the work makes a social or political comment. Other work expresses imagery that reflects the natural or the sub-conscious, I work mainly from my imagination, preferring to work at the border between representation and abstraction. Working like this has a tendency to produce the accident and in turn deliver new realities that express visual poetry ; enigmatic and beautiful even when the work may express a dark subject matter.” - Bob Dawson
