About Gavin Dobson

About the artwork

We were going on holiday. I was going on holiday. Or supposed to be. Unfortunately, it was the Summer of 2020. Instead I created a collection of oil paintings. A fantasy of what may have been. Perfect bodies in paradise conditions. Pools, ponds, lidos, are places to work out or to relax and gaze at the surrounding beauty whilst floating weightlessly in a sea of blue. They’re also meeting places. Speedos, shorts, six-packs. A glance of a muscular back – wet – as it strains to heave it’s owner out of the pool.

With this series, I wanted to explore the themes of water and the homoerotic. The paintings are fluid and colourful. Abstract figures, strangers, slyly glancing at each other.

(Please note that in situ images are purely an indication of how a piece may look).
