abstracts, is a collection of works by the artist dmcq (1960, belfast). The exhibition consists of a selection of large and small format paintings produced between 2013 and the present.

Themes of rhythm, dance and movement, tranquillity, reflection and presence are all explored as the paintings flow through a world of abstractness. Throughout, colour and shape are abundant. Shades cross, textures drag while colours overlap and merge, creating forms, occupying the surrounding space.

The works are never planned, they are in the moment. Oils are applied to the canvas with palette knives and found objects, often painted on the floor, on the horizontal plane, grounded. The resulting shapes and colour illuminate and captivate the imagination. Their abstract and what may seem, chaotic nature, unveiling a colourful play stretching into their titles. While somewhat whimsical, are more metaphorical of mood and emotion.

In the end,one sees what one wants to see, the formless nature of the works, flirting with colour, alive in their space. In the eyes of the beholder.

Eventually, all is...


accompanying the exhibition is an electronic soundscape in three parts, tempesity, produced by apollo59 (aka dmcq/m.snape).
