Michael Reid Art Bar is thrilled to present ‘One Day at a Time’, the first joint exhibition of Marc Etherington and Chris Dolman.
Loaded with self-deprecating humour and sharp observations mostly drawn on personal experiences, this exhibition will present a new series of ceramics by Chris Dolman and new paintings by Etherington.
“I first included the works of Chris Dolman in Painting Now in September 2022 and we began the conversation then for Marc and Chris to create this exhibition.
Marc and Chris are long time friends and this is the first time that they have both exhibited together in a ‘duo’ show.
Although both artists work across various mediums Chris’s suite of ceramics in One Day at a Time present a unique, distinctive perspective where his painting ability is strongly visible.
The everyday is seen through the artist’s viewpoint exploring the ‘ups and downs’ of middle age. Joyful, melancholic and often awkward, the autobiographical nature of the works form a wonderful narrative that often has concurrent threads.”
