PIERMARQ* is thrilled to welcome Joel Dickens back for his second solo exhibition with the gallery.
Over the past few years Dickens has spent time developing his purely abstract style. Through his process, Dickens consciously challenges himself and his usual practice in an effort to acknowledge the complexities of adulthood, while referencing the sense of spontaneity and lack of inhibition that is habitual to youth. In his bright, raw works he reconciles a personal truth that is both autobiographical and broadly relatable in that nothing can really be black and white. The works exists in the realm of thought where one can simultaneously acknowledge multiple possibilities while never fully submitting to one.
