Vermin — Room 101 Exhibition

Art-el proudly presents “Room 101, The Fine Art of Graffiti'. This is the first solo show of works from the artist Dale 'vn' Marshall a.k.a. Vermin. Room 101 will showcase 101 oil paintings completed in 101 days, (during the summer 2010), as well as five additional show paintings and site-specific installations, all deeply reflecting and exposing Vermin's ongoing battles with the rigours and demands of mental health.

In total around 140 paintings were finally completed in the 101 days before the artist enforced his stringent quality control to tailor that down to the required number.

All of the works in the exhibition will signal the artists salient diversion to the medium of oil on canvas, resulting in work with subtle backgrounds, impasto and consummate depth. Influenced by past masters and late 1800’s expressionism, yet mixed with Vermin’s highly recognisable piercing letter form and dirty graffiti aesthetic. Some are hectic, others more meditative. no doubt a reflection of the constant ebb and flow of a schizophrenic mind.

The show opens at 6.30pm on the 9 October 2010 and will run until the 22 October 2010.
