Abstract or Description

Essay for the catalogue accompanying the major exhibition of paintings by Dexter Dalwood at Centre PasquArt Art Center, Biel/Bienne, Switzerland, April 21 - June 16, 2013. The essay examines the nature of Dalwood's practice as a history painter, his use of collage, and in particular the significance of the ways in which he refers to and borrows from the work of other painters. The character of this borrowing not only structures his compositions, but also provides the interlocutors in the politically and poetically inflected arguments that his invariably unpopulated canvases set in motion.
