John Dahlsen From Floor to Wall
The exhibition’s title is indicative of the evolving nature of Dahlsen’s work. After a productive period of assembling works from objects literally found on the ground; which were then displayed on the floor, in wall mounted frames and in installation.
Dahlsen’s work has undergone a transformation through the use of recycled plastic bags and digital imagery.
Dahlsen’s earlier works were assembled from objects that arrived with the incoming tide; left high and dry at the highest point of the beach they had been jettisoned, tossed, moulded, abraded, pummeled and rounded by the sun, the wind and water.
