Now Nowhere Here 2000

LIKE MAGAZINE summer 2000
QUOTED FROM MAURICE O’RIODAN

“Permutations of the words NOW, NOWHERE, and HERE, a conumdrum of meanings appearing in an expressive range of colours and script like an affirmation or schoolchild’s exploratory take on writting. Not to belittle their sophiscated, painterly compostion. This focus on text is a new development for Dickens’, though in many paintings there are signature collage details: the hand-sewn cowrie shells, rows of seeds and stripes of fabric, all poised to heighten her uplifting sense of form and colour.”
…..”Dickens’ word works certainly tap into some of the new-millennial stress on “nowness” while avoiding its trappings.”
