“Call & Response” Veronique Wantz Gallery
June 23, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Veronique Wantz Gallery is thrilled to bring you “CALL & RESPONSE” a solo show featuring works by local Minneapolis artist Jack Dale.
Please join us for an evening of fine art and conversation while enjoying his intuitive mark making and works of abstract expressionism.
Jack Dale, an ex-hockey Olympian, began by painting landscapes. 13 years ago, he decided to change direction and hasn’t looked back since.
Influenced by many well-known abstract expressionist artists such as Twombly, Diebenkorn, De Kooning, and Pollock to name a few; Dale’s works can be bold in organic form and also immersively detailed with a maze of marks intertwining on the canvas.
Whether you attribute some pieces with an air of complexity and intelligence and others being more playful and lively, they all start from a place of spontaneity and intuition. Without any preconceived ideas, paint is applied to the canvas and from there on it is a series of brush strokes, scrapes, rollers, smears, layers and color combinations until the piece is completed.
Scrub, scrape, smudge, repeat.
We look forward to sharing these incredible works with you!
