dexter Dexter

I am a York (England) based artist and my work is always based around re - creating words and names which somehow influenced me in the previous four decades of my life.
These recreations of cultural icons and obscurities have been shown as large format text installations at Leeds City Art Gallery, Scarborough Art Gallery, Pocklington Art Centre, Edinburgh Festival and through various group and solo shows in York.
Dexter tries to make sense of the 21st Century by recreating the recent past.
Dexter attempts to draw us into his world of nostalgic reflections of the 1960's/70's/80's and 90's by developing large format block text containing hundreds of words, product names,television programme titles, adverts, band names, song and film titles etc. Each is a collection of cultural icons and obscurities taken from the last four decades of his and our lives. Available at any size (but most effective at standard or landscape) pieces can be altered to personalise the requirements of the buyer - text can be removed or added and the colour layout can be specifically commissioned.
