An exhibition by Claire Dorsett
21st November – 19th December 2015 | Open event 19th December 2015 5-8pm
Prompts for this painting include the colour purple (difficult), grabbing dinner with my brother (not difficult, unless I’m skint), comments about where we went from friends, lampshades and interior decor (restaurant decor), Eduardo Paolozzi’s The Cage, 1951 and Pino Pascali’s Trap, 1968. Something about traps and corsets and dinner (maybe). Oh, and drawing, as always.
More generally, Claire Dorsett’s work takes inspiration from notes and casual, seemingly insignificant things. She makes small things big and big things small, both in terms of their size and feeling. Dorsett paints and draws and she likes to keep the works open, unresolved and enough about her to communicate something thought, felt or seen, but not so much about me that she locks down the narrative.
