Wally Workman Gallery will present Carol Dawson: "Monochromes." Dawson draws inspiration from the natural world, exploring the life cycles of flowers from their buds, infancies, blooms, and deaths. Only allowing herself to use at most three pigments in her works, she is intrigued with the idea of growth through restraint.

This theme is also inherent in her use of negative space surrounding the florals, giving the works a sense of abstraction and movement. Dawson describes her work as “a process of diving straight into the delicious richness of the subject…while also using the discipline I’ve imposed for myself for the purpose of distilling the flowers’ life cycles into their purest, most vital forms: their profusion, their stillness and delicacy, their fading.”

The exhibit will be on display until October 30.
