MARCEL VIDAL
STUCK ON DAWN

We are delighted to present
Stuck on dawn 
Marcel Vidal’s first solo exhibition
at Kerlin Gallery

INSTALL 1

Celebrated for his diverse practice and immersive sculptural installations, Stuck on dawn 'brings together three series of work in Marcel Vidal's first exhibition dedicated exclusively to painting. Quietly disarming and unsettling us with an ominous beauty, Vidal’s paintings are marked by their refined and restrained brushwork, layering oil on linen with delicacy and precision and by their minimal, cropped compositions. 

These works explore unknown, uncertain spaces with Vidal’s characteristic use of dramatic colour, light and shadow. They invite our curiosity, offering glimpses of their diverse subjects; canopies of dense banana tree foliage, the stretched acrylic skin of tents and the dark shadowy images from distant moon landings.  In the exhibition Stuck on dawn the intriguing imagery seems familiar and recognisable but ultimately Vidal’s paintings remain ambiguous, emerging from shadow, partial or obscured.
