Dawn Nye

Dawn Nye is an Associate Professor of Art (New Media) at the University of Maine Farmington and has maintained a studio practice for the last 20 years. In her work she is most concerned with telling stories of conflicting human desires, best intentions, beauty and futility. She uses humor, pathos and the history of image to connect to ideas that she cannot describe with words alone. She is influenced by graphic design, film, animation, music, literature and the history of art--but also by the people she meets, the neighborhoods she has lived in and the headlines she reads.
