About the work
Verne Dawson
American, b. 1961
Follow

In his still lifes, portraits, allegorical scenes, and abstract works, Verne Dawson investigates the continuities that persist in human nature and culture, exploring how they are chronicled through narrative and visual representation. Examining the subjects of myth, folklore, astrology, and pagan spirituality, Dawson attempts to re-forge the connection between humanity’s past and present and depict a world in which the human race exists in harmony with the natural world. Dawson’s childlike technique and naïve approach have prompted comparisons to Outsider Art, though Dawson’s compositions are carefully crafted rather than generated intuitively or compulsively.
