Available from 'Artist's Room Gallery' - Dunedin
"Radiant Dawn" is an evocative work of art that delves into the sensory dialogue between humanity and the sublime spectacle of the day's first light.
The painting embodies our visceral reaction to the play between luminosity and color, capturing the profound influence of the sun's ascent on the tapestry of human emotion.
Centered on the canvas is a vibrant inner circle of hot pink, symbolizing the intense core of life and energy found within each new day. This fervent hue transitions to a wash of warm orange, embodying the nurturing and comforting light of dawn. The composition culminates in an outer glow of soft yellow, suggesting the gentle diffusion of sunlight through the morning sky.
The circular motif serves as an emblem of infinity and wholeness, representing the enduring search for a deeper, cosmic connection.
"Radiant Dawn" is more than a visual celebration; it is a tranquil meditation on the serene beginnings each sunrise promises, a canvas that radiates calm and offers a moment of reflection in our ever-moving lives.
I want the viewer to respond to beauty at its most simple truth… an imperfect symmetry amplified by colour.
Recognising our emotional response to luminosity and colour; I seek to capture the impact of the rising sun.
The circle symbolises infinity, completeness, and the search for a connection to something greater.
Tranquillity and calmness are intentionally evident in my work where I present a limitless destination where light, colour, form, and space consolidate.
