Dickon Drury

Challenging traditional notions of seeing, Dickon Drury injects comedy into his work to call into question how and what we choose to honor. Drury’s fascination with the potential of shadows creates warped and uncanny imagery which lead to playful compositions.  These compositions while delightful to the eye, neither portray traditional images of beauty nor straightforward scenes, leaving the viewer with the responsibility to interpret his intentions.  Drury often paints cherished objects behind cases and fences, allowing the viewer to see banal forms as artifacts worth documenting and preserving. Drury combats the often repetitive tradition of still-life and portraiture by injecting his work with obvious slapstick tropes.


Recently Drury has held solo exhibitions at Koppe Astner in Glasgow, Spike Island Project Space in Bristol and group exhibitions at Safehouse 2 in London, Rogue Artist Project Space in Manchester, Londonewcastle Project Space in London, and the Old Cycle Club in London. In 2016 he received the Desiree Painting Prize from the Slade School of Fine Art.
