Dexter Dalwood – part 1

Taking a look at some contemporary painting for a change – this is part 1 of a 2-part post on the works of English artist Dexter Dalwood. Dalwood was born in Bristol, England in 1960. He received a B.A. from Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, London in 1985, and an M.A. from the Royal College of Art, London in 1990. Dalwood’s first solo exhibition was held in 1992 at the Clove Building, London.

Since then, Dexter Dalwood’s collages and paintings have been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows, building a strong reputation over the last decade in the UK, Europe, and the United States. Solo exhibitions include “Dexter Dalwood,” a major survey of his work at Tate St Ives, which tours to FRAC Champagne – Ardenne, Reims, France and CAC Malaga, Spain. This comprehensive exhibition, featuring work from the past 12 years, allows the public to gain a fuller understanding of Dalwood’s key stylistic and thematic interests. Dexter Dalwood’s work is found in both the Tate and Saatchi collections, and has been integral to many highly innovative and landmark group exhibitions.

He was shortlisted as one of the four nominees for the Turner Prize 2010.
