Dale Atkinson is by most definitions of the term a 'narrative artist', but not a particularly obvious one and certainly not a ‘start to finish’ one.
Drawn primarily to the human figure as both subject and vehicle, his paintings and drawings rely upon the dynamo of suggestion to move them forward. They tap in to a short circuited world of intrusive sub plot; where reason is the dummy pill and transient conspiracies of figures, objects, shapes and colour are left to guide the dialogue.
