David Dawson's first solo painting exhibition opens at Marlborough Fine Art
Summer Central Park, August, 2012. Oil on linen, 45.7 x 61 cm.
LONDON.- Marlborough Fine Art London is presenting an exhibition of new works by David Dawson. This is the first solo painting exhibition for an artist whose photography has been widely celebrated. The exhibition is comprised of 27 new works, exploring landscapes in London, Wales and New York.

David Dawson has been a painter for nearly thirty years, having studied at both Chelsea and the Royal College of Art in the 1980s. After graduating, Dawson quickly became Lucian Freud’s studio assistant; a role which lasted until Freud’s death in 2011. During this time, Dawson photographed the artist regularly; producing acclaimed images, which were exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in 2004 and at Pallant House Gallery in 2012.

Since Freud’s death, Dawson has devoted himself fully to his painting once again. It was from within this context that Dawson continued to work from his own studio in North West London, painting the suburban views that were visible from his studio window. Recently, Dawson has returned to the place of his childhood in Wales, making works observing the rural landscape. The scale of these paintings, 65 x 80 inches, is Dawson’s approximate arm-span, a scale which suggests the painter’s total immersion within the landscape.

A final series of work was made in New York, depicting the city’s epic skyline from a position overlooking Central Park and the skyscrapers surrounding it. These three strikingly varied environments – the suburban, the rural, and the metropolis – are all treated as the raw material from which to work and are interpreted through Dawson’s brush.
