Description of Clarté
Abstract, original mixed-media acrylic collage painting by Dawn Siler. Clarté is a textured mixed media blue, white and purple dream. This painting is representative of me, as always, trying to reach a level of mindfulness and clarity, as my mind seems to at times be on overdrive. Everything I create tells a story of my visions of love, bliss, meditative clarity and wanderlust.
All of my paintings are heavily varnished for adequate protection.
Every painting is signed and dated by the artist.

Dawn Siler is an abstract artist who lives and works in Irving, Texas. A native of Philadelphia, PA her colorful paintings are a continuation of her personal interest in meditation and the unconscious mind. Having studied at the Art Institute of Philadelphia, where she concentrated on video and music production, her sense of space and visual awareness broadened. A diverse career followed, but painting–a love that was largely self-learned–became Siler’s outlet for intellectual and creative self-expression. Her paintings demonstrate a kind of automatic writing. Inspired by the work of Lee Krasner, Jean Michel Basquiat, and Jackson Pollock, her work is closely tied to the spiritual in art. Color, line, layers, drawn into patterning, and a floral palette saturates the canvas. Intensity, rhythm and improvisation abound. Her work possesses a raw unfiltered sensibility that speaks loudly, clearly and expressively. Ever evolving, Siler’s bold and colorful compositions are visual poetry, weaving tales of universal and spiritual elements; constructs on her life’s journey.
