Shea Dalton’s works for the RHA Ashford Gallery are the outcome of his research into the assimilation and recontextualisation of images or motifs, of ideas and influences, that create a fragile nexus of meaning which holds the work together.
These modestly sized abstractions are an absorption of post minimalism and expressionism, but ultimately become neither of these things. Each painting attempts to have its own scale, light and composition. His methodology is organic, where each artwork emerges from the condition of its own creation, searching for a colour pitch in the painting, expressing a certain kind of opaque emotional tone and light.
