Dale Cox: Supermankind

‘We do not, as a single species, have the right to take the rest of our diverse planet down with us… Art has an essential role to play in acknowledging this fact.’ – Dale Cox

The artist’s meticulous paintings rendered in acrylic use the confronting symbol of the skeleton to highlight our culpability and future in association with climate change. By using the icon of the skeleton Cox flips the metaphor of a faceless actor as a positive – we are all implicated. Hear the artist talk at 3pm on Saturday 14 March.
