DAWN BECKLES

Dawn’s interpretation of the classic still life is unparalleled in her use of vibrant colour and contemporary settings depicted alongside her reoccurring subject matter, the exotic flora inspired by her native Barbados.

A mixed media artist specialising in combining painting, collage and screen printing, Dawn frequently parallels found images of man-made beauty with those of the natural world. It is in Dawn’s paintings that one will find high fashion, bespoke interiors juxtaposed with orchids
and birds of paradise painted from her private collection.

The philosophy underlying Dawn’s body of work is to celebrate the intimate relationship between an item and its owner by illuminating the context in which it is presented. Her process, whether constructing an elaborately furnished roomscape or the study of an austere clay pot draped with crocosmia. In her painting she invites you to learn more about the home owner as she gets to know them.

Her work can be found in Soho Farmhouse, The Wing London and private collections in Dubai, Sweden, Los Angeles, New York and Belgium.
Biography. Dawn is also a regular exhibitor with The Other Art Fair both in the UK and US. She reached Second Stage shortlist for the BP Award in 2019.
