Dafydd Fortt (September-November 2008)
Dafydd Fortt is a Cardiff based artist and has spent the majority of his life living and working in Wales. His work, which is intricate, often intensely colourful, and celebratory in nature springs directly from his experiences within the Welsh landscape.
He acknowledges the impossibility of being fully able to communicate the entirety of these experiences and therefore aims to offer a totality in optical experience, which although abstract, can be equivalent in sensual intensity to the overall experience of nature at certain times.
Dafydd’s elements of nature create not landscapes but huge delicate wallscapes giving the gallery an energy force. His work alters the space in which he exhibits and alters the person moving through it. The work serves to make us aware of and question our relationship between the natural, physical and perceived world.
