Dan Rees has been producing Artex paintings since 2011 – this work being one of the first ones the artist ever produced. Artex is a surface coating which was widely used in 1970s Britain to add texture to interior walls and ceilings, most often adorning working class homes in the UK. By repositioning the swirling patina of Artex into the context of painterly abstract pieces, Rees produces works which are texturally rich, yet aware of their own internal conflict. This series of paintings is imbued with the dichotomy between aesthetics and class and is characteristic of Rees’ skill for combining the language of abstraction with cultural history.
