Information

Nick Dawes studied at the Gloucestershire College of Art and Technology and graduated with a BA in Fine Arts at the Brighton Polytechnic. Within his colourfield canvases, the artist is striving for a new quality of painterly abstraction. His ability to control complex tonal arrangements and the juxtaposition of irregular shapes is what gives his works their unique and striking appeal. The unified flatness of his paintings, while remaining flat, also contrive to present us with various possibilities of distance - of nearness and of farness.
