Dawn Csutoros is a contemporary Australian artist currently based in Melbourne who exhibits both nationally and internationally.
Csutoros’ art works range across a varitety of mediums, from subtle, luminous pigment pieces to contemplative ink works on traditional handmade papers, acrylic paintings and more recently video projection and sound installations.
Her work is phenomenological in essence.
The artist’s long term interest in Eastern philosophy, in particular Daoism, with its underlying tenet of the harmony of opposites, is the underpinning foundation of her artmaking.
Her artpieces explore the notions of time and space on universal and existential levels, resulting in abstract imagery and the exploration of the sensuality and energy of the medium in the purest way possible, both in its physicality and its conceptual capacity.
The works are to be felt, experienced.
Csutoros’ art is not only a formalist practice, she also responds to contemporary concerns. The artist has worked on cultural community and public art projects at both local and international levels, creating and managing projects which explore contemporary issues as diverse as the environment, health and intercultural dialogue.
Dawn’s work is represented in numerous collections around the world.
