Midlands based painter Dermot Punnett is exhibiting a new series of paintings at Tarpey Gallery from 8th March to 19th April , 2014. Titled Before The Past And Beyond The Future, these new works emerge from imagery both personal and found whilst incorporating the effects of reproduction and pixilation into a painterly aesthetic.
Through this process Dermot is looking to engage with and understand the complexities of perception and experience, whilst perhaps reflecting on a sense of modern day anxiety.
The work itself is a mix of abstraction and figuration, geometric forms are superimposed onto the painterly landscape, with one informing or obscuring the other.
“The image is at first immediately accessible but beyond the familiar there is something more to be discovered, something both enlightening and enchanting”
