Dawn Rodger Art

I'm an oil painter based in North Devon in the U.K., specialising in figurative and landscape art. My artworks tend to reflect my preoccupations with light, colour, and an unobtrusive symbolism, with threads and folds of fabrics representing thoughts and emotions, animals symbolising friends and loved ones, beaches marking the space between the conscious world and unconsciousness, and stars and circles implying history, chronology and time. Through the use of texture and multiple layers of oil paint glazes, I hope to create captivating depth and luminosity, infusing the viewer with a sense of calm contemplation.
