About The Artist
Eve Dawson MA Fine Art, born in Devon, lives in Hampshire. Eve’s work is a perfect balance between the serendipitous and the planned. Her creative language is colour, using a series of idiosyncratic marks and gesture in acrylics, oil pastels and graphite. This then forms a conversation between visual texture, colour, form and depth. Eve’s work is collected by private individuals in the UK and internationally.
As well as her studio practise Eve is a lifelong learning tutor at Peter Symonds Adult Education College in Winchester, teaching courses & workshops in portraiture, drawing, painting and also tutors & mentors at the Hampshire Art Studio sharing her skills and experiences as an artist. Eve gives some of her time as a volunteer at ‘Prescriptive Art’ a prescribed group in Romsey that provides a relaxed space where mindfulness can be achieved through creativity.
“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
