large and medium-scale watercolor on paper. In addition to continuing to explore the subject of domesticity, Clements takes on sentimentality. This new body of work includes paintings on paper of aging floral and still life arrangements on her kitchen table. Clements’ signature glued, folded and distressed paper, gives the work an almost sculptural quality. In addition to a renewed focus on her domestic space, Clements has also made a return to color.
“After some years involving much travel away from home, I took this past year to be home, reflect and work. This work took me back to my living space, particularly the kitchen table. I count my days through my work. The past seven-and-a-half years of my life have involved love, loss, and change. Thoughts of passing days, people, gestures and the often overlooked objects of daily life has driven my work in a sentimental direction, many in the form of watercolor flower works.” - Dawn Clements - thru Mar 29
