The British artist Dan Baldwin is to present new work at Mayfair's Maddox Gallery. Under The Influence will be Baldwin's first solo show since signing up with the gallery, and the 15th of his career to date.
It presents paintings that represent the rising popularity of Baldwin's work. Inspired by visits to warmer climes, their layered canvasses abound with warmth and colour. Snatches of found images and cultural objects are scattered between fragments of texts and splotches of colour.
Born in Manchester, Dan Baldwin is a painter and ceramicist. Covered in copious references to objects both known and private, his pieces often deal with the debris of his own mind.
According to the British pop artist Peter Blake, "Looking at Dan’s work is like meeting old friends for me... I have really enjoyed his work."
