About The Artist
Eve Dawson is an MA postgraduate of Winchester School of Art and a self- employed visual artist at The Sorting Office, Eastleigh. She applies her work in a considered and expressive way. She says “I love the contrast between these two approaches. Usually I have an idea as to what I want to visually achieve through colour and movement”. Eve paints in an abstract and expressionist style, featuring varying brush marks. “I’m permanently engaged in conversation between directional and static areas. Colour is very emotive for me and always leads the way”. Eve draws inspiration from the works of other contemporary artists such as Joan Mitchell, Cy Twombly, Christopher Wool, Jo Davenport and Emilio Vedova.
Eve is interested in collaborating with interior designers, architects and interior stylists. Her work is well- postioned and priced for residential, hotel and restaurant contracts. Eve’s work is also collected by private individuals in the UK and internationally.
“I first saw Eve’s work in a modern and minimalistic setting and was particularly struck by her expressive use of colour and contrast. Her abstract style has huge depth and has evolved to cover many new colours. I find her work particularly striking and am a big fan.”Collector
“This stunning exhibition by Eve Dawson showcases her bold expressionistic style and her particular sensibility to abstract forms and bright popping colour. Her spontaneous approach to mark making creates dramatic splashes, vivid marks and abstract painterly forms provoking in each viewer a particular emotional response.”Gestures
“Eve’s bold expressionistic style is characterised by abstract forms and bright popping colour, using acrylic paints and inks to produce works that capture spontaneity and drama. To me it has echoes of Howard Hodgkin, all the intensity of colour and freedom of movement but with a lighter touch.”Theatre Royal Winchester
