Dawn Perrott graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design in Print Contemporary Practice with a first class honours in 2020. She is a practicing member of Limerick Printmakers and currently participating in LIT Wom@rts Creative Europe training programme.
Perrotts work is a collaboration with her deceased grandfather Arthur. By means of utilizing family memorabilia dating back to the era of 1950s Ireland. She chronicles her transcommunication and encounters with her family’s past via printmaking. This collaboration with the past is an integral element to cultural life today. The artist strives to recount and narrate the past retold in her expressive style.
Through her practice she has recorded past realities and rearranged photographs by physically drawing, painting, collaging, cutting and layering over the works to reinvent old forgotten worlds. Highlighting how changed society is today. She makes large scale work, typically A2 and larger to highlight and hone in on certain properties the photographs possess.
Dawn has exhibited nationally and internationally independently, as well as a member in the Limerick Printmakers.
