At a time where we could all benefit from a little escapism, dot-art’s new exhibition invites you to walk through a world of imagined landscapes created by artists Carol Miller, Brigitte Watkinson, Natalie Gilmore, and Simon Cooper.
Carol Miller is a multi-award winning artist who creates imagined rural and urban landscapes which she uses to weave emotional and psychological narratives. Fascinated by skies and how they reflect moods, Miller’s paintings often capture atmospheric, dream like skies, bounded with emotion.
Brigitte Watkinson was born and raised in Bavaria and now lives and works in Cheshire. With colourful collage elements, she creates a layered, tactile narrative exploring feelings of despair, hope, endurance and optimism. Watkinson works reflexively across different mediums which enables her to create a visual language that articulates what otherwise may remain unseen and unheard.
Growing up and living in the Liverpool city region Natalie Gilmore takes inspiration from her surroundings, painting through a vibrant hued lense. With abundant use of colour, Gilmore creates a joyous enigmatic version of our region.
Northern artist Simon Cooper’s work collapses the boundaries between realism and surrealism. Simon’s landscape paintings reflect his sense of hope for the future despite the inevitability of life, channelling the profound enlightenment, illumination and empowerment that has filled his life over the years.
Due to COVID 19 restrictions, we will not be hosting our usual bustling private view at dot-art Gallery, we are however very excited to invite you to our live digital launch on Zoom to celebrate our new exhibition with you all online.
We will begin with a video tour of the exhibition followed by artist talks from exhibiting artists.
We will close the zoom launch with a Q&A – register here
Exhibition continues Friday 18th June – Saturday 14th August
