Dale ‘vn’ Marshall – New collection to be released 12/04/11

Art-el are delighted to introduce the latest body of work from the artist Dale VN Marshall. October 2010 heralded a breakthrough show of some proportion with the much acclaimed solo exhibition ‘Room 101’ which has set the bar in terms of VN’s relentless almost blind pursuit to make everything he touches a masterpiece.

He’s the first to admit that painting 101 canvases in 101 days has left its mark, but in another way there’s been a distinct slowing of the pace (but no foot off of the gas) and a more mindful approach to his painting, with the letterform now almost dissolving completely whilst concept and context seems to have come to the fore.

After facing so many demons in his last body of work the soothing process has seen him return to Cornwall, the heart of the rural South West to photograph and muse in the grounds of St Lawrence’s institution, where he spent some dark days after his sectioning.

As a result the new body of work is intertwined with subtle nuances of imagery along with brushstrokes, line work and impasto, that on first glance is instantly more calm and calculated than the hectic and disturbing chaos that was so evident in his previous work.

Perhaps more notably this will be his last collection in the UK for a while, as his third year of fine art study will be undertaken at the prestigious UCLA University in California after nomination from the arts faculty at Coventry University. This is obviously a very exciting move for Dale that will allow him to soak in the culture, so synonymous with that area of the world, especially the world of graffiti, which is intertwined in his background.

This will also allow Dale to prepare for his first solo US exhibition that will be held at the Anno Domini gallery in California in Spring 2012. This follows the sell-out of all nine of his canvases that featured in their prestigious Fresh Produce exhibition which took place at the turn of the year.
