Daniel Oxley – Dark Wood
Excerpt from catalogue, by Cameron Skene
“If you’re going through hell, keep going” – Winston Churchill[…]
The state of spiritual suspension is reinforced by Oxley’s recent work: vessels hung from the top of the picture plane, combined with a surface reassembled from disparate painterly strategies, marks, textures and forms. Caves and outcroppings, for instance, become a formal device as well as supporting metaphors for this place of pause.
