Abstracts in Oil and Acrylic Exhibition by dmcq

Down Arts Centre, 2 - 6 Irish Street, Downpatrick, County Down, BT30 6BP
Dermott McQuillan


Abstracts in oil and acrylic is a collection of works by the Andalucian based painter dmcq (born Belfast), bringing a palette of colour observed through the sunlight and seasonal change of southern Spain. The exhibition consists of a selection of medium and small format oil and acrylic paintings exploring themes of movement, tranquillity, and reflection. Throughout, colour and shape are abundant. Shades cross, textures drag while colours overlap and merge, creating forms, occupying the surrounding space.
The works are never planned, they are in the moment. Oils and acrylics are applied to the canvas with palette knives and found objects. The resulting shapes and colour illuminating and captivating the imagination. Their abstract and what may seem, chaotic nature, unveiling a colourful play stretching into their titles. While sometimes whimsical, are more metaphorical of mood and emotion.
