The Heron | Photograph, 39" x 50"
The Heron was the outcome of a "note under the door." It was photographed in a Georgian townhouse on Henrietta Street in Dublin. The artist had heard it was a very authentic Georgian home and left a note under the door to gain permission to shoot the space. To her surprise, the owner came straight away to find her where she was staying in town and invited her to come the very next morning. She was able to work in the magical space for hours and produced this incredible piece. Art has the power to transform. We love inviting the works our community of artists into homes around the world. The stories told through various artistic expressions we curate helps create a more beautiful and authentic world.
Dale is drawn to document architecture, interiors and gardens that represent a wide span of centuries. She looks to represent both the classical motifs and the beauty that is found in distressed and decaying structures. The formality of much of the work is guided by the desire for a sense of order and the isolated fragments are abstractions that offer up an element of surprise.
