Dale Lewis - No Place Like Home
Block 336 is thrilled to present No Place Like Home, an exhibition of new paintings by the London-based artist, Dale Lewis, that responds to his experience of Covid-19.
Depicting a host of characters from London’s lesser and well-known gay and LGBTQ+ scenes, from the Royal Vauxhall Tavern to Wanstead Flats, these new paintings reflect on how social distancing and enforced segregation impacts on the shared experiences of intimacy, pleasure, solidarity and loss and the impact this has had on already marginalised, underrepresented and undercared-for groups.
Made throughout 2020 and 2021 the works represent a singular vision of the artist’s life in and out of lockdown and highlight his experience of the intense isolation, tragedy and absurdity of Covid’s cruel consequences.
