Gordon Dalton b.1970

Gordon’s recent paintings have a quiet melancholy that questions their intentions.

An anxious contradiction is on show, with the work being self-conscious of what it is, its possible failings, yet it revels in a new found simplicity and relationships to landscape painting, finding an intimate beauty in both natural and post-industrial landscape.

Gordon’s work asks the viewer to look longer and harder at what painting is, and why it continues to fascinate.
