Carole Dawber: Colourscape

29 July – 23 September 2023
Free Entry. Monday – Saturday. 10am – 4pm.

Multi-disciplinary artist, Carole Dawber, continues to break down the barriers between craft and art by advocating a reciprocal rearrangement of traditional values.

A practising artist ever since graduating from Liverpool College of Art in 1978 Carole was subsequently elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

“I intuitively operate in an experimental way using different resources to allow my work to evolve organically. Usually supported within linked themes, they often overlap or emerge from previous stimuli that I have exploited along my creative journey.”

Experimentation and evolution remain important features of her process and the catalyst behind ‘colourscape’ came during lockdown excursions along the Sefton coastline. Constructing an abstracted narrative Carole captures the tones, patterns, shapes and textural details of the region to induce both feelings of nostalgia and escapism in the viewer.

“I find the coastline a magical place, one that brings a sense of hope and optimism with the renewing nature of the turning tides. For the ‘colourscape’ series I wanted to I heighten the colour of the landscape and use unexpected hues that jolt the sense of place and makes you question the reality of what is depicted. My two main agents are acrylic paint and textiles, with colour central to both expressions. When working in paint I prefer a limited palette from which I mix a variety of sympathetic hues and tints. For my textile pieces I apply acid dyes on reclaimed sari silk to generate an extensive range of shades from which to select.”
