Signal Gallery promises to be his most powerful yet. Since bursting onto the urban art scene two years ago with his stunning first solo show at Signal, ‘Echoes and Exorcisms’, Dale’s career has gone from strength to strength.
In ‘Arcana’ Grimshaw is using the imagery of the Tarot to inspire a series of works with a similarly raw demonstrative edge. Moving away from self- discovery the artist is using this ancient and mysterious imagery to present universal states of mind. Taking a number of cards from the pack, he has created a modern, very personal interpretation of their symbolism. Each card has a very distinct atmosphere and many demonstrate more complex compositions than we have seen recently from the artist.
Nevertheless, they still retain that same emotional candour that made Grimshaw’s work stand out from the crowd and communicate so strongly to a wide audience. “Arcana’ will be proof enough to convict this artist of the crime of being one of the most promising painters of his generation.
