Solo show of paintings by Gordon Dalton
The Idiot Convention at Motorcade/FlashParade
PV 7pm Friday 28th June
continues Saturday 29 Sunday 30, then Friday 5 to Sunday 7 July or by appointment.
Gordon Dalton’s paintings have a melancholic humour that questions their seriousness and intentions. His seemingly dour, offhand approach denies any superficial finesse to reveal a love of defiant, unwieldy imagery.
The paintings are self-conscious of what they are, their possible failings, yet disregard any angst by replacing it with a certain nonchalance and arrogance.
Motorcade/FlashParade is an artist-run project space in Bristol, providing a platform for emerging artists and hosting an annual programme of exhibitions and events. Initiated in 2009 it is fast evolving into an exciting test space for contemporary practice, supporting and encouraging the development of new work and fresh ideas.
