ALONG THE WAY - Daniel Ablitt : Solo exhibition from one of our most treasured artists

14 - 26 July 2022

SOLO EXHIBITION FROM ONE OF OUR MOST TREASURED ARTISTS
This new body of work continues an exploration of the theme of being on a journey.
Experiencing the places and moments that stick in the memory and touch the soul.

When Daniel observes the landscape, he does not set out to record a likeness of a particular location, but rather seeks to engage with the profound effect it can have in experiencing it.

His paintings depict part-imagined places, and half remembered landscapes, captured mostly from his travel experiences and childhood. Often a narrative is alluded to but not fully explained. These suggested stories have an intimacy and warmth to them, drawing the viewer in.

During the painting process, he adds layer upon layer of glazes and washes, the pigment sinking into the surface, giving a heightened intensity of colour. His light brushwork bringing to life tiny details such as lanterns and starlight. The result being that each painting can be experienced as conversation of colour, light and form.

The exhibition will be held in a stunning gallery in the cultural hub of Nottinghill: 

J/M GALLERY, 230 PORTOBELLO ROAD, LONDON W11 1LJ

There will be a Private View on Thursday 14th from 6pm and special events throughout the fortnight.
