Daniel J.G. | Inner Landscapes
7 July – 30 July
Inner Landscapes is a solo exhibition of paintings by Deaf artist Daniel J.G. Showcasing an exciting new body of work made during the pandemic alongside older works, this exhibition offers a view into the inner worlds of Daniel’s artistic process and development over the past ten years.
About the artist
Daniel J.G. is a Brighton-based Deaf artist, originally from Cornwall, making work inspired by the beauty of nature and the positive impact being in nature can have on mental health. In the past Daniel has studied pottery, photography and painting but over the last few years he has focused solely on developing the painting side of his practice. Growing up along the coast and living in Brighton for over 20 years, Daniel has spent countless hours outside studying the colours, shapes, textures, lighting and forms of the landscape. When painting, Daniel draws on all these visual references and the emotions they evoke to produce abstract compositions rich in meaning.
Daniel says: “Being outside in the natural world is a huge part of maintaining good mental health for me. Having grown up in a hearing world, prohibited from learning sign language until I was in my teens, I found solace in the outdoors and developed a deep connection with nature which has been a welcome escape from the isolation I have experienced. By sharing my work with others I hope to inspire a greater appreciation of the natural world and remind us of our shared humanity and interconnectedness.”
During this exhibition the gallery will be open to the public on the following days and times:
Wednesdays: 1 – 6pm
Thursdays: 1 – 6pm
Fridays: 1 – 6pm
The gallery will also be open for related events outside these times – more info on this coming soon.
Several artworks will be available to view in the gallery window whilst the gallery is closed, and all works will be available to view online.
BSL interpretation will be provided in the gallery and on this page very soon.
We are waiting on the latest government announcement with regards to what Covid-19 related measures will need to be in place after 21 June and will update this page accordingly.
