Verne Dawson

Posted on

The allusive paintings of American artist Verne Dawson (b.1961) suggest an artist fascinated with storytelling. Dawson's idiosyncratic paintings defy contemporary art-world trends and eschew categorisation, revealing an artist attuned to ideas and values that stimulate an original artistic vision. Informed by a range of interests and influences, from fairy tales to 19th-century American landscape painting, Dawson's eerie and diverse canvases are intriguing and thought-provoking.

This month we published a monograph on Verne Dawson as part of our Contemporary Painters series.

John Hutchinson's survey of Dawson’s work to date provides fascinating insight into a complex oeuvre and places the artist's work in various contexts including storytelling, astronomy, American landscape art and counterculture.
