British figurative and landscape artist Dawn Rodger was educated in London, U.K. and Western Australia. Now based near the Taw Estuary in North Devon, she paints from her studio inspired by its big skies and coastal waters.
Dawn’s artworks reflect her preoccupations with light, colour, and an unobtrusive symbolism. Threads and folds of fabrics represent thoughts and emotions. Animals often symbolise absent friends and loved ones. Beaches mark the space between the conscious world and unconsciousness. Stars and circles imply history, chronology and time. She uses textures and numerous layers of oil paint glazes to create depth and luminosity, infusing the viewer with calm contemplation. Having survived a life-threatening brain inflammation in her late twenties, Dawn’s paintings continue to offer her a secret world of colour and motion to explore untethered from the frustrations of daily life.
Dawn is an elected full member of the Westward Ho! And Bideford Art Society and her works are held in private collections in the UK, the US and around the world.
The paintings are signed on the front and come with a catalogued certificate of authenticity attached to the back of the work. They are carefully packaged and sent fully insured via a tracked courier.
