Austin's Wally Workman Gallery is putting on a solo exhibition for artist Carol Dawson. According to the gallery's website, Dawson's recent body of work "focuses on the relationship between birds and water. Birds move through this medium as easily as they move through land, trees, and the upper air. Water as food source, habitat, cleanser, refuge, map: no other species shows such complete mastery of all the elements of our environment. As a painter, Dawson finds transmitting their experiences an exciting compositional challenge and she aims to dissolve the barriers between them and the human observer. Responding to the 18th and 19th century traditions of natural science illustration, Dawson continues to explore the mystery of the natural world and our evolving relationship."
Opening September 12 and on view through October 04, 2020.
