Andrew Dadson is a multidisciplinary artist who works across painting, photography, and installation to investigate the changing landscape and environment. His work, Black Medic (Medicago Lupulina) Orange is part of a body of work he calls “painted landscapes,” made through a two-step process of spraying monochromatic biodegradable paint made from brews of cochineal, ochre, and indigo upon a landscape and then photographing the painted land. For all his painted landscapes, Dadson decides how and what to paint by composing the shot through the camera’s framing. Collectively, the works use abstraction as a way to create new meaning, investigate metaphoric and physical boundaries, and impose a subtle act of resistance that references these painted landscapes as signifiers of medicine, salves, and sustenance.

Dadson is a Vancouver-based artist who graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Vancouver. His work has been exhibited at such venues as Vancouver Art Gallery; Unit 17, Vancouver; Audain Art Museum, Whistler; Daniel Faria Gallery, Toronto; Galleria Franco Noero, Turin; Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; and Nino Mier Gallery, Los Angeles. Dadson was the recipient of the Brink Award from the Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington.
