opening reception / friday april 21 / 5-8 pm
exhibition / april 21 – june 3, 2017
Jarvis Hall Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition with Calgary artist, Mark Dicey. We hope you will join us on Friday, April 21 between 5-8 PM for the opening reception. This exhibition will feature a variety of new paintings which Mark has been vigorously creating over the past year.
Studio work, study and general consciousness of abstract painting are on going and critical to Mark Dicey’s practice. The reactionary relationship that take place in the painting process are paramount to the outcome of each of his pieces. His creative process is in a constant state of movement with each brushstroke, stain and drip relating to the next mark and final touch.
A Traffic of Ideas
“I use the word traffic as a metaphor for the way I work and the way I think. The way a painting I am working on gets built. It definitely is physical and cerebral in a sorting and decision making process that takes place to allow the “traffic” to flow. I bring everything I know (my own history, knowledge, abilities) to the studio and pursue the making of a painting. There is an intended outcome, but there is also unpredictability, chance and the unknown that I welcome to achieve new discoveries. I am always striving for the most open thinking and honesty.” – Mark Dicey, 2017
