Dawn Beckles is a mixed media artist specialising in combining painting, collage and screen print. Dawn frequently parallels found images of man-made beauty with those of the natural world. It is in Dawn’s paintings that one will find high fashion, bespoke interiors juxtaposed with orchids and birds of paradise painted from her private collection. Her interpretation of the classic still life is unparalleled in her use of vibrant colour and contemporary settings depicted alongside her reoccurring subject matter, the exotic flora inspired by her native Barbados.
The philosophy underlying Dawn’s work is to celebrate the intimate relationship between an item and its owner by illuminating the context in which it is presented.
