Dexter Dalwood in conversation with William Feaver

Dexter Dalwood’s paintings sometimes depict imagined spaces inhabited by politicians, philosophers, celebrities and other figureheads. These compositions include interjections of imagery that create unconventional combinations of space and architecture. Whilst some works inhabit a dark and sinister geometrical headspace, others can depict the opposite – that of a bright and airy interior. Dalwood has had a solo show at Tate St. Ive’s, was nominated for the Turner prize, and is represented by Gagosian Gallery.
