WALLS WITH WOUNDS DALE Vn MARSHALL

The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in Coventry is playing host to Dale Vn Marshall’s new exhibition Walls With Wounds so I travelled across the water-logged terrains of England and passed through the halls of The Masters at the Herbert to embrace a new Master intent on sharing his magic…

This exhibition charts many years of reparation in Dale’s journey through life so some canvases hung in the gallery are literally open wounds screaming out in anguish whilst newer paintings bask in a new-found warmth and healing. It truly is a magical experience amid canvases so vibrant and alluring they seem to whisper for you to dive in and immerse yourself in their kaleidoscopic oils of emotion.

Walls With Wounds will run at The Herbert Gallery for a staggering 3 months which is no mean feat for a graffiti artist turned fine artist to achieve, the only other graffiti artist to achieve such a long run at a museum in the UK is Banksy. The museum has worked alongside DASH Disability Arts Shropshire and the In Project to bring this exhibition to fruition and what a bitter sweet harvest it is.

    Simply put, STUNNING! The power of the work bridges across the Atlantic to the U.S.A. It holds me captivated by the energy that not only went into making each piece, but also the skill, talent and thought that brings each work to have its own unique voice …. calling, weeping, healing, raging, pulling the viewer to engage it – each one appears thoughtfully built for the viewer to enter… and somewhere in the intelligent complexity of color and matter I meet the painter. Vulnerable strength in all its tenacity gently touches my soul – allowing me to share in the Artist’s world. It just doesn’t get better that!!! Amazing, gutsy, smart, this Artist isn’t slapping stuff together. We are getting it from the gut through the heart and laid to rest with skill and intellect. I am invited to ponder the visual poetry. Quite refreashing and much appreciated. To the Artist: Cheers and with due respect for all you put into these works of Art ….. Thank you for respecting yourself, your voice, Art making and your public!
