26 Oct - 03 Nov. Dramatic paintings of West Coast waves and of their dynamic effects on Scottish trawlers caught the attention of the judges who recently awarded Dawnnne the Jolomo Prize 2013 in this biennial competition, the largest privately funded award in the Arts in UK. The daughter of a Campbeltown fisherman and a GSA trained artist, Dawnne is well placed to experience and record the anxiety of fishing families over this precarious liveliehood. "I was obsessed by the scale of the ocean, its physicality, poetry and my father's voyages on it to catch fish. I loved his tales of the stars on a clear night and their use in navigation. But with joy there is fear; what the sea gave it could also take".
We feature a selection of her work from 26 October in preparation for a major show of her new work in March 2014.
