Dawn's exhibition opens in Warwick

THE land, with all its personality and spirit, was the inspiration for Warwick artist Dawn Marriage whose first solo exhibition has opened at Warwick Art Gallery.

Marriage has been painting for 11 years and has exhibited before in group exhibitions. She has also inspired many new artists by teaching her unique technique in several popular workshops in 2009.

“The effects of the elements and time, along with the cycles of life, leave designs and shapes that continually stimulate my imagination,” Marriage said.

“My paintings are influenced by nature and the reactions I have to it.”

Her technique involves using traditional materials, such as acrylic paint and charcoal, which she combines with sand, small seeds, modelling compound, rice paper and tissues.

The lusciousness of the textures she creates is what makes her paintings so popular with viewers.
