Gavin Brown’s enterprise
May 3–June 25, 2017

GBE presents Tinnitus, Verne Dawson’s 8th solo exhibition at the gallery. Featuring new paintings made in New York and North Carolina the exhibition is on view at the gallery from May 3 – June 25, 2017.

A painter of landscapes, still lives, and portraits, Dawson’s subjects are sometimes imaginary and allegorical, but are always based in the reality and timeless rhythms of the natural world. Expressing this ancient pulse for the contemporary moment has been his goal over thirty years of painting.

Verne Dawson has exhibited widely internationally and has been the subject of monographic shows at Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin, Le Consortium, Dijon, Camden Arts Centre, London and Kunsthalle, Zurich. Dawson‘s work has been featured in significant international exhibitions such as the 2011 Yokohama Triennial, the 2010 Whitney Biennial, the 2006 Lyon Biennial, 2003 Venice Biennial and has been presented in shows at venues such as Palais de Tokyo, Paris, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and Musée d‘Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
