"Ein Brief" – New Paintings by Dexter Dalwood
“... it is as if my body consisted entirely of coded messages revealing everything to me. Or as if we could enter into a new, momentous relationship with all existence if we began to think with our hearts.” (Hugo von Hofmansthal)
The exhibition with recent paintings by British artist Dexter Dalwood responds to Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s celebrated text “Ein Brief” (1902). Dalwood’s recent works are poetic, stark and astringent – intensely modern, industrial, yet dense with mystery and contemplation. They compliment perfectly the psychological themes explored in “Ein Brief”, and also relate Hofmansthal’s text to the history and capacities of painting.
