4me4you visits Stolen Space Gallery which featured the artist Dalek -‘Buried Beneath the Surface’.
James Marshall aka Dalek, is an American painter best known for his Space Monkey character. He is also known for his photography, murals and illustrations.
Dalek experiments with a series of his test prints as the foundations for his vibrant explosion of hand-painted geometric shapes, including his iconic ‘Space Monkey’.
His intuitive eye for perspective is translated across varying mediums, as he applies paint on top of prints, transforming the initial test concept into a realised original piece.
Each layer, material, and composition, creates a unique experience of considered uncertainty, as Dalek allows each element to find it’s own place and meaning in the moment.
Dalek continues to explore the push and pull dynamics of opposing forces—the play between rigidity and fluidity.
