Dawn Steeves: Glimpses of Saint Andrews | May 6 – 28, 2022
In this collection of oil and ink on paper, wood, and canvas, Dawn Steeves presents impressions of Kingsbrae Gardens and Salty Towers. She created these works during a residency at Kingsbrae International Residency for the Arts (KIRA) in September of 2021.
“This work is a series of snippets or partial scenes which combine to create a visual adventure. I strive to create an experience for the viewer which they can explore. I am interested in creating mood using a particular palette and combination of colour which is not quite real, tending to lean to the warm side, reminiscent of old colour photographs, giving a feeling of nostalgia. The subjects in my work are often truncated or extreme closeups, scenes not quite filled in, which emulates the way memories sometimes create an incomplete picture of the past, or the way dreams provide only a partial view of a place or thing.” – Dawn Steeves
