Dexter Dalwood

Dexter Dalwood's paintings embody our fascination with the private environments of the rich and famous, functioning as a substitute for documentation of the secluded worlds they depict. Dexter Dalwood rightly claims to be a latter-day history painter, taking it upon himself to visualise notorious locations that have become embedded in the popular consciousness. Dexter Dalwood's paintings stem from his own imaginings, enhanced by exhaustive research of eyewitness testimonies, biographies, available imagery and personal memoirs.
