Liverpool dot-art exhibition emerges out of the darkness


Liverpool gallery dot-art is emerging Out of the Darkness with its first exhibition after the easing of lockdown.

The commercial gallery in Queen Avenue, off Castle Street, is staging the work of Merseyside artists Madeleine Pires and Haylea Archer until June 5.

Pires and Archer’s work explores the expression of life through art.

Liverpool artist Pires creates what she describes as visual manifestations of the ‘power of the human spirit to explore, discover and express the energy and emotion unique to our kind’.

She says: "My art has been created as a sacrifice-filled process searching for meaning, truth and the source of creativity itself."

Meanwhile Archer, a trained art psychotherapist, approaches her practice from a symbolic and metaphorical perspective, explaining: "With a therapeutic approach to creating work, my aim is to share a strong emotional connection with others through an honest passion for painting."

Out of the Darkness is at the dot-art gallery in Queen Avenue from April 17-June 5. The gallery is open from 10am-6pm on Thursdays to Saturdays.
