Neil Dawson - Empire State
‘Empire State’ and ‘Lights of London’ return to the busy bustling streets of New York and London. Using iconic imagery
and architecture I hope to transport the viewer into the hearts of these cities.
I love to use colour to convey the vibrancy and energy of the places I paint. I use photos to plan and structure the
paintings and when the colours are present I highlight and exaggerate certain areas to create rainbow effects with my
coloured dots. As well as points of light, the dots aim to create a shimmering, ambiguous backdrop so that the scene
is not entirely static; I completely encourage viewer interpretation. These cities are alive and ever-changing; I hope that
my paintings generate different feelings and evoke diverse memories not only in collectors but also in those who are
new to my style.
