International Visiting Artist

Dawn Dupree
Internal Dialogues / External Process

June 27, 2012 at 6:30 pm
The Textile Museum of Canada
55 Centre Ave., Toronto, ON

UK-based textile Artist Dawn Dupree will speak about her creative practice and her work. Through her printed textiles, she explores narrative elements, creating constructed landscapes through the use of hand drawn and photographic images. Her inspiration comes from a variety of sources including cinema, urban wastelands, abandoned domestic objects, photography and her own mark-making. Her loose, improvisatory approach to print making allows her to build up layers of images on the cloth, working with the idea of transitional space to create polarities within her work. Dawn also teaches at London Printworks Trust, and is a visiting lecturer at Goldsmith's College.
