Intuitive and prolific painter Dawna Rose develops each new series of artworks in response to the reason she started them rather than to a preset idea of what they should look like. And instead of attempting to integrate the various elements within each picture, Dawna chooses to celebrate their differences, blending representation and abstraction in unexpected and visually striking ways.
Dawna Rose has exhibited widely across Canada, published limited edition books, made award-winning work in animated film form, and held a number of grants and artist in residence positions. Her ongoing solo projects include her “Today’s Bouquet” series, the “Rooftop” and “Just Good Friends” portraits from 2021, “2.9 Billion Birds Gone”, and work from the exhibition “Journal of the Plague Year(s)” with Betsy Rosenwald at the Remai Modern.
