LONDON ART FAIR: EDIT

FEATURING DANIEL PREECE'S SOLO EXHIBITION: HYMN TO HOME

20 – 31 January 2021 (VIP Preview 18 – 19 January)

Hymn to Home' is a solo show of work by Daniel Preece celebrating London, his muse and his home until 2018. This selection of twenty works created over the last 20 years ranges from vast, majestic panoramas to intimate studies of shop fronts and overlooked corners rendered in his unique, vivid colour palette. We are taken on a journey through deserted city streets at day and night - we peer through shop windows one moment and soar above the city the next.

My intention is to encourage the viewer to consider the city differently and I hope lead them to reassess their daily surroundings with a different eye.’

This feels particularly poignant in the midst of a pandemic when we cannot interact with the city and eachother as we once did. Indeed seven of the works on show were painted over the course of 2020. Daniel’s atmospheric paintings, both bleak and beautiful, are devoid of people, a narrative is hinted at and themes of isolation and consumerism recur. Of course each viewer may see the scene differently - a celebration of the city, of colour, perhaps post apocalyptic or an escape. For Dan it is always an opportunity to explore issues of geometry and colour and the boundaries between abstraction and figuration.

‘The best paintings for me show you something you haven’t seen before; it’s about the artist finding a new way of describing something but allowing the viewer to come to some of their own conclusions’

Links to the online exhibition and a PDF of work will be available from Wednesday 20th January
