Dale Grimshaw pays tribute to all those struggling figurative artists still out there. His work celebrates the art of painting and the mediums power to depict atmosphere, evoke memories and stir emotions. Even if this appears to be from an outsiders perspective – warily watching himself and the world around him. Dales varied and virtuosic style clearly demonstrates both the continued relevance of figurative painting as a medium for 21st Century expression and that he himself is a master of the genre. No apology needed, this is artwork that needs to be seen, understood and appreciated. Dale is working towards a solo show at Signal Gallery in 2009.
