Dawn Arrowsmith’s paintings are meditations in color. It has been said that each is a kind of minimalist luxury – pure, distilled, economical, but also rich, luscious, erotic. Her work is intuitive, greatly influenced by Buddhist philosophy and by her travels to the Orient. She exhibits internationally and is widely collected. Her husband, Roland Reiss, was extensively documented by Focus on the Masters in 2010.
