Dalene Meiring’s latest body of work invites the viewer to engage with ‘Anecdotes’, visual tales told through vibrant hues and eclectic imagery.
Expressively offering themes of femininity and connectivity, Meiring creates worlds in which familiar motifs such as flowers, landscapes, cityscapes, objects and animals, take on wider symbolic qualities.
Meiring has long been fascinated with the intricate ways in which the elements of our individual worlds coexist. It is this interaction that drives a gentle anecdotal narrative through each artwork, be it an abstracted landscape, a joyful floral composition, or an animal at rest.
Finely rendered in oil, the large scale of these paintings offers us a place to contemplate the shifting textural layering and serene tapestries so reflective of the timeless fragments of daily life.
