Le Dame Gallery is delighted to present “ Assolo”, a Solo exhibition by the winner of the CASS ART Commission 2014 Jean-Luc Almond.

About

Obsessed by the materiality and texture of the paint itself, Jean- Luc is interested in the transformations that can take place when he is no longer a slave to the image and the painting becomes more about the paint and the surface. He sees paint as a vulnerable skin hovering and clinging to the subject, masking the identity of the subject. Sometimes a random damaging mark can surprisingly enhance and enliven the image. He layers multiple paintings on top of each other before scratching away at the surface to reveal phantasmic faces peering from beneath. 
His paintings are constructed through the processes of creation and destruction, damage and repair. 


PRIVATE VIEW on the 4th October from 6pm to 9 pm
