Dawn Carroll's figurative drawing and sculpture explores the human condition inspired by environmental and social issues.
In present times with expansion of big cities and the onslaught of technology it has become easy to lose touch with nature and oneself. Dawn's recent sculpture is in response to our relationship with nature and lack of nature, from innocent childhood memories and their sense of wonder, to adulthood with its cynicism and indifference.
Life drawing is fundamental to Dawn's working practice and feeds into her sculpture. Her figurative work looks at our strengths and fragilities whilst endeavouring to keep a sense of humour, and spontaneity to help capture the true essence of the human spirit.
