dewi plass


solo exhibition

Opening on October 21st, 2022

Arch Enemy Arts is thrilled to present our new solo feature of Dewi Plass entitled: CORRESPONDENCE: CONNECTIONS MADE IN A UNIVERSE OF DREAMS. A magical series of 9 original works, Plass invigorates her cradled panels with awe-inspiring animal subjects, superbly rendered in acrylic paint.


Soft, subdued, and carrying palpable metaphoric weight, Dewi’s work is entrancing to behold. Activating a masterful sfumato, the focal creatures emerge from her compositions in brilliant clarity, their forms and surroundings receding in an unfocused, ethereal haze.


The artist’s personal show statement reads:


When a sense of uncertainty casts a shadow over the world we inhabit, we are forced to re-evaluate the normality of our everyday lives. Familiar patterns all of the sudden become a peculiar fabric through which we construct our being in this world. This change opens up new pathways of thought on how we connect with and within the world, and it is this question that lies at the heart of my new show.


Starting from the premise that the world is a conversation and that it exists in the correspondence between biophysical, human and spiritual elements, the connection between matter and energy - the self and the cosmos - has come to play an important part in this new body of work. I like to believe that lived and dreamed realities inhabit the same realm in which the world is continuously being created. After all, our imagination plays an incredibly important role in the way we are able to live our lives and imbue them with meaning. To explore this premise further, I turned my focus inwards to my own lived and imagined realities and the way they shape my world. Through that exercise I have aimed to (literally) shed light on elements that constitute the correspondence between me and the world- between me and my universe of dreams. This exercise has resulted in nine new paintings for which I’ve drawn on personal experiences and sentiments that I subsequently tried to translate into overarching experiences of being. They highlight fragments and elements of the correspondence that takes place, a kind of correspondence that can be sensed, perceived and hopefully even resonate with others through the social, cultural and spiritual ties that connect us all. “Correspondence” is about our ability to imagine, create and thereupon connect with and within the world and all its elements - which is quite the super power if you ask me, a power that deserves to be celebrated.


CORRESPONDENCE: CONNECTIONS MADE IN A UNIVERSE OF DREAMS is the artist’s 5th solo feature with Arch Enemy Arts following 2020’s Escapism.
