Neil Dawson is a sculptural magician. He uses paradox, illusion, transparency, shadow, scale alteration, repetition and the dynamics of momentum as he manipulates perspective and form.

He instigates transformations and builds visual riddles using parallax, interference, reflection and refraction. He blurs boundaries between the tangible and intangible, between the real and imagined. He uses architectural devices, interlacing geometric patterns, illusions of mass, spiralling patterns, sweeping arcs and notions of rising and falling in masterful works that defy convention.

He allows colour to alter as you watch, and hides hues on undersides and edges that are discovered and revealed. He juxtaposes constructed and natural objects – making clouds out of chairs, I-beams, birds, darts; cones out of leaves – in works that tell partial stories and attain wonderful lightness of being.

Selected Works covers seven years and six significant series, and includes new works.
