Painting a Day Series: April 21st, Dawn MacNutt

It just struck me, that the majority of our features in the painting a day series, aren't paintings at all... We feature a true range of mediums here at the gallery, and this blog series is a testament to that fact. Today's feature is by Dawn MacNutt, who combines techniques rooted in textiles, into beautiful, figural sculptures.

"Resonates" (pair) twined willow, polychrome $3600
‘Release’  (Single) 37” x 13” x 13” $1800
‘Recall’ (Single) 37” x 12” x 14” $1800 

These willow figures  (woven when they are fresh, green and pliable) are beautifully painted in colours that embody Dawn's personality - these brilliant jewel like colours paired with the warmth of the natural willow are absolutely stunning.
