Exploring in depth our Infrastructure
Dale is enticed by man-made landscapes and is mesmerised by the way that light gives these structures a new perspective. Her most recent work focuses on brutalist architecture, exploring the hard lines and flat shapes of these buildings. Dale has a deep interest in the texture of the concrete and enjoys experimenting with a plethora of techniques to reflect the variation of man-made environments that shape the modern world.
Dale commences her work by taking photos of the buildings that will be her focal point. She captures these buildings at the moment where, due to the right amount of light exposure, shadows start to appear on the walls of the architecture. Instead of using sketching, Dale draws directly on the canvas, attempting to simplify viewpoints to the essentials of light and shape.
Vicky Dale has participated in many exhibitions across the UK. The painter has taken part in shows including the Lynn Painter-Stainers Finalist Exhibition and the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition in 2017.
