Dawn Arrowsmith


Arrowsmith’s paintings are meditations on color. It has been said that each is a kind of minimalist luxury – pure, distilled, economical, but also rich, luscious, erotic. In the artist's lyrically rendered Meeting Place series, the artist relates emotion to time and space vis-à-vis her relationship with past artists such as Agnes Martin, Anjolie Ela Menon, Frida Khalo, and Georgia O’Keeffe. Arrowsmith’s paintings reveal a deeply personal response to both geography and individual character. In these works, the artist fuses memory and fantasy by placing her meticulously delineated cartographic forms floating above fields of vibrant color.
