Andrew Dadson (b. 1980) is a multidisciplinary artist who employs a variety of mediums including painting, photography and installation. His practice is grounded in conceptual and process-oriented methodologies and is consistently marked by its thick handling of paint where the layers push the parameters of the medium. Central to Dadson’s work is a deep interest in the social contracts shaping the natural environment, from which he creates artworks that investigate and reflect on the landscape and highlight a constantly changing environment. Well known for his large-scale photographs Dadson often depicts detailed close ups of plants hand painted with natural dyes that read as both monochrome painting and ethno-botanical documentation. Dadson lives and works on the unceded territories of the Squamish, TsleilWaututh and Musqueam peoples In Vancouver, Canada. Recent solo exhibitions were held at Daniel Faria Gallery, Toronto (2019), 313 Art Project, South Korea (2019), Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver (2017), and Galleria Franco Noero, Turin (2017). Dadson is currently nominated for the Artisti Frescobaldi Art Prize in Florence, Italy.
