Private view Monday 10th September from 6pm
Exhibition runs 11th September - 9th November
In her second solo exhibition with Zero10 Gallery Delphine Hogarth depicts her concern with disclosing feelings and moods. Her paintings represent men set in abstract backgrounds - this choice not to focus on a geographical place puts the male figures' moods at the centre of the paintings, insisting that men do not belong to just one place. Their emotion links them to others as a social interaction. Geography and beliefs are purposely erased as they would interfere with the emotions captured in the paintings.
In these paintings Delphine talks about the representation of human emotions; there are fights, wars, love, beauty, sadness in Delphine's paintings, but there is almost always only one human figure... one individual.
The paintings show a free brushstroke as they have been executed on the spur of the moment, due to Delphine's changing lifestyle, but also with the idea that these paintings are about capturing men at a certain point in time.
Although not directly inspired by William Hogarth's work, from whom she is a direct descendent, her concerns are the same - trying to understand the human condition and emotion.
Zero10 Gallery is thrilled to represent Delphine and show this exciting new body of work.
