Dawn Pearcey

From early success with traditional watercolour, I side-stepped inwards to a landscape rather messy, a destination known but vacated. On paper this took shape with collage, gouache, pastel, and varnish bringing out words, emotion, error, and grace from watery placid faces – a topography that engages instinct over intellect. Our personal geographies are maps that can be travelled or not, peered at or folded away, souvenir laden or forgotten. Making art is a navigational process – in the doing of it we find our route away, or toward, our self.
