British artist Dawn Gabrielle Chandler paints absorbing and intricately detailed tableaus. Working in gouache, Dawn creates thematic and meticulously composed still life paintings. In Dawn's compositions, a variety of items appear arranged together. Dawn playfully calls this unique brand of still life, painting a "shelf-life."
In Dawn's pieces, each object and the object's placement has a meaning. Her images are richly detailed, complex, and contain amusing nuggets of humor. Dawn's work invites the viewer to lose themselves in the complexity of their design and to wonder over their meaning.
