OUT OF CONTEXT
An exhibition by Dan Newso
Opens: Thursday 12 January 2017, 6-9pm
Exhibition Runs Until: Thursday 19 January 2017
During his Butcher Shop residency, Newso has has been exploring a new direction both within the gallery and exterior large scale murals, combining abstract and figurative painting.
Employing cut and paste, implied collage and glitch aesthetic he takes his subjects out of context juxtaposing them with shapes and patterns. He examines themes of identity, protest, ambiguity and disguise through his figures.
Exploring non conventional materials, Newso has employed the use of raw building materials and concrete surfaces in his gallery works, which embody the qualities of exterior surfaces used as canvases for his murals. The artist presents his gallery works in handmade floating oak frames.
Dan Newso is visiting us from the UK, using his residency placement to develop his practice and build an international audience. This trip has been supported by Arts Council England and British Council.
