An exhibition of digital images which have a cinematic style reminiscent of the 1950's and feature British and Arctic landscapes. The exhibition will be running from 6 January – 28 February 2020 and is open to BU staff members and their guests only in the Staff Centre, Talbot Campus.
DL is a self-taught artist with a love of wild places. He prefers to paint anonymously and took up art as an antidote to academic life a few years ago. DL works mainly in acrylics and watercolour and has also under taken installations in wood and stone.
The collection of paintings being exhibited consists of a selection of work some digital, completed using the freeware Krita, and some in more traditional media. The digital images have a cinematic style reminiscent of the 1950s and feature British and Arctic landscapes. Penguins feature throughout DL’s work, as do climbing motifs and solitary figures. BU has a long tradition in digital art and in environmental science which this exhibit celebrates, while drawing attention to fragility of wild places, of human endeavour within them and the need to conserve untamed landscapes. The exhibition runs throughout January and February 2020 in the Staff Gallery, which is part of the Staff Centre on Talbot Campus.
Where: Staff Centre, Poole House, Talbot Campus - open to BU staff and their guests only.
