Dawn Candy is a visual artist living and working in Red Deer, Alberta. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Lethbridge where she studied analytic philosophy and religious studies. She then went on to achieve her diploma in Visual Art from Red Deer College. Currently she teaches several community art classes in addition to making her pottery.
“I make pottery that concerns perception and change: growth, erosion, order and disorder. Inspired by pattern and by landscape, my pieces often reference natural theatre like wind whipped leaves and grasses, turbulent skies or melting ice and snow. I work to depict visual movement across or down the surface of my pottery and also to embed movement into that surface, revealing and concealing layers. I’m interested in how nature becomes distilled, embodied, and morphed through human perception and imagination into literature, myth, art, ritual, and superstition. My work feature surfaces that attempt to depict an almost magical interpretation of the world; I want the imagery to seem familiar but nuanced and a little unreal.”
