For the exhibition 'The MONUMENTAL Pictures' Dale Holmes will be presenting two major new paintings 'MONUMENT (for B.P.)' and 'MONUMENT (for I.T.)'. The title of the show refers to the physical size of the work, the architecture that occurs from its making and the practice of formalist abstract painting.
The works here have been designed and constructed specifically for the show at Bloc Projects and are made in response to the exhibition space, its interior architecture and its possibilities as a space for paintings.
These works belong to an ongoing investigation into the practice of abstract painting and the contemporary currency of its specific characteristics and in particular here; material, colour, scale and composition.
Dale works in Sheffield and is currently engaged in PhD level research funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
To accompany the exhibition there will be a soiree on 7th April 6.30-8pm to correspond with the Gravity Lecture series organized by Sheffiled Hallam University
