Wendy Dawson is a painter whose art practice is one of repetition and structure. She produces her work by applying hundreds of linear marks to the paper using paint pens and permanent markers. Employing only
two or three colours in each work, Dawson gradually builds layers using repeated parallel lines, creating a knitted quality on the paper and the illusion that the picture is somehow electrically charged.
Dawson has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 2008. She has been included in group exhibitions, including Melbourne Art Fair, and has been featured
in each Annual Gala at Arts Project Australia. Her work is held in private collections throughout Australia.
