Dawn Beckles' 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. It is in Dawn’s painting that one will find high fashion, bespoke interiors and objets d’art elegantly juxtaposed with orchids, birds of paradise and livistona 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, requires the layout to evolve intuitively before applying her extensive technical skill and range to bring her vision for each work of art to fruition.
