Artist in Residence

Centre Celf are delighted to welcome their second artist in residence, Dawn McIntyre.

McIntyre’s residency entitled Sanguis et Capillum will focus on creating a self-portrait using abstracted images of organic materials, studied under a microscope.

Throughout November, McIntyre plans to develop a series of portraits looking at different elements of self, to enable viewers to see aspects of the artist and to identify with themselves.

McIntyre’s paintings and sketches capture images which translate the experience of places to which she has travelled, using materials she finds fascinating at a particular moment in time.

The four residencies in partnership with Disability Arts Cymru are funded by the Arts Council of Wales and provide a unique experience for Disabled Artists living in Wales to develop their artistic practice.
