Dawn Woolley -  29/3/2017

Dawn Woolley completed her undergraduate degree in fine Art Printmaking in 2001 and has since developed a visual art practice that encompasses digital video, installation, performance and photography. In 2008 she completed an MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art. She is currently undertaking PhD research in photography at the Royal College of Art. The broad aim of the research is to articulate the pathologies of consumer culture and the impact they have on consumers. She explores the relationship between people and objects, and the impact of images as disseminators of sign value. The practical aspect of the research project centres on the still life as a type of portrait suggestive of different consumers. Taking her cue from Dutch still life paintings from the seventeenth century that reflected a conflicting relationship to material wealth, she has developed still life objects that also reflect a contradictory relationship to consumerism.

Recent exhibitions have included; “”Basically. Forever” Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and “Recollection” Ruimte Morguen Gallery, Antwerp (2014). Solo exhibitions include; “Visual Pleasure”, Hippolyte Photography Gallery, Helsinki, Finland (2013); “Visual Pleasure”, Vilniaus Fotografijos Galerija, Lithuania (2012); “Visual Pleasure” at Ffotogallery in Cardiff (2011), “The Substitute”, Murray Edwards College, Cambridge University (2010); South Square Gallery, Bradford (2009), and The Lighthouse Art Centre in Wolverhampton (2006).
