DAWN TILL DUST

Luke Crouch ・ Thomas Gillant ・ Joel Plunkett ・  Paul Rowland

Gradients of nocturnal colors, silhouettes among textures, ethereal scenes unfolding under atmospheric light… “Dawn till Dust” gathers work by four artists concerned with ways of looking. Underlying their imagery is an interest in visual perception and surface manipulation to veil and reveal both non-objective and figurative forms. Their work, ranging from paintings to photos and videos, reflects the physical and digital worlds that we inhabit.
