Description of Of Humbleness & Absurdity
Abstract, original mixed-media acrylic collage painting by Dawn Siler. Of Humbleness & Absurdity is a textured deep blue & gold leafed beauty. As I have an absolute love of travel, you’ll find bits and pieces of maps in many of my mixed media creations, and this one is no exception. Don’t forget to look closely…:)!

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.
