The 2nd Story Gallery is happy to present "Human Actuality Week," an exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Calgary artist Dawn Trueman. The exhibition consists of a body of work made since Trueman snipped the umbilical cord of art school seven months ago. The show observes a quirkier side.
About her first solo show, Trueman says, "Being essentially autobiographical, my work is personal, as I am what I know best." Her work is about relationships of people and things in the guise of myth. It is a way of thinking, or a logic of dreams. The work attempts to be an ongoing dialogue that requires the whole set of elements and relationships to complete a conceptial circle.
Dawn Trueman studied Painting and Sculpture at the Alberta College of Art, where she graduated in 1986.
