Gordon Dalton (b. 1970) is a contemporary painter from Middlesbrough, based in Saltburn by the Sea. He holds a Fine Art degree from The University of Wales and an MFA from Northumbria University. The subject matter of his colourful, abstracted, painting spans industrial and natural landscapes.Gordon’s recent paintings have a quiet melancholy that questions their intentions. An anxious contradiction is on show, with the work being self-conscious of what it is and its possible failings. It revels in a newfound simplicity and relationships to landscape painting, finding an intimate beauty in both natural and post-industrial landscape. Gordon’s work asks the viewer to look longer at what painting is, and why it continues to fascinate.Select solo exhibitions: Auxiliary Warehouse, Middlesbrough Trade Gallery, Nottingham Bay Art, Cardiff Bank Gallery, Los Angeles Keith Talent, London Castlefield Gallery, Manchester Moot Gallery, Nottingham (with S Mark Gubb)Select group shows: Royal Academy, London Matthew Burrows Selects, Unit 1 Gallery, London Contemporary British Painting Prize, Riverside Gallery, Richmond Beep Wales Painting Prize, Swansea
