DAWN PEARCEY is a self-taught artist currently working with mixed media on paper, creating portraits with themes of self – its vocabulary and facade – and the imperfect psychology of time. Paper, paint, pencil, paste… materials that translate the textural emotion of thought into a visual presence, an archived self holding steady in the spin of current experience.

The inward landscape is rather messy, a destination known yet vacated. Our personal geography is a map that can be traveled or not, peered at or folded away, souvenir laden or forgotten. Making art is a navigational process – in the doing of it we find our route away from, or toward, our self.
