This summer, Attenborough Arts Centre presents a new body of drawings and paintings by Leicestershire based, contemporary artist Daniel Cave.
Daniel Cave combines the painterly techniques of colour, suggestive forms and surface qualities, with sculptural
materials, which for Cave act as ‘crude grips on the physical world’. His ideas come from observation; specific points of view which become abstracted. The exhibition features many new paintings produced specifically for this exhibition. Cave also presents new drawings and studies that are more graphic; using pattern and repeating marks. The relief elements in these works on paper are crucial, despite being very subtle. Cave draws on a range of artistic, musical and literary influences, amongst them Paul Nash, Yves Klein and Paul Klee.
Daniel Cave was selected for this exhibition from New Walk Museum and Galleries annual Leicestershire open exhibition. As a result, he will take us residence in the Attenborough Arts Centre throughout July and August.
