Rory Dax Paton Exhibition – Friday 2/12/11
@ Zekka Gallery Presented by Muse Bureau
Rory Dax Paton revealed his noteworthy debut solo exhibition of artworks at Zekka, King Street on Friday night. Each work features ink, watercolour, gouache, pastel, charcoal and pencil on paper.
At only 30 years of age, Paton’s expressionist works were surprisingly mature in nature and rich in culture. The historical traditions of the great Chinese freehand calligraphy paintings are obviously an influence to him and added a sense of gravitas to the works. What made these pieces exceptional and, indeed modern, was his coherent use of colour set against what would have otherwise been a completely monochromatic presentation. There was a touch of sexual innuendo which appealed to me and we all know, in any genre, context or medium, I always love an explosion of bright colour, so there certainly were a few favourites in there for me.
If you have not yet been to this exhibition, I strongly recommend it – with an eye to purchase.
In these current economic times a solid investment is not to be scoffed at and a purchase of one of these remarkable works by Paton, will not only be a cherished commodity, but surely also, an asset for life.
The exhibition runs from Saturday 3rd December – 21st December 10:00am – 5:00pm at Zekka Cafe (closed Sundays).
