Neil Dawson - Lights of London

‘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.
