About

Dawn Henning currently lives and paints in Brooklyn, New York.

Artist Statement

My love of birds and their gift of flight is a recurring theme in much of my work although I rarely paint them in flight.  

The subtlety of patterns in natural forms and the colors as they appear in the natural world interests me. That juxtaposed with my love of patterns and color in textiles and the material world is the basis for much of my visual exploration.  

I have been Influenced greatly by my years working as a printmaker.  Paper is my favorite surface on which to paint, and I often paint in layers working with the residue of pigment that gets trapped within the fibers. 

 

Dawn Henning currently lives and paints in Brooklyn, New York.

She earned her BFA in Painting, from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1991, studied Woodblock printing techniques with Mohammed Khalil at Parsons School of Design and Lithography with Judith Solodkin at Pratt Institute.
