Artist talk with:
Wednesday, February 26, 2014
The CASV invites its members to a studio visit with Andy Dixon on Wednesday, Feb 26th at 6:30pm.
Currently working out of Vancouver, Canada, Andy Dixon’s work contrasts refined subject matter with a coarse application of his materials. Although his subjects are often romantic, Dixon’s approach and use of colour remove their idealism, accenting the humanity of both the subject and the artist simultaneously.
He is self-taught with no formal academic training. Dixon’s work is represented by Rebecca Hossack Gallery in London & New York as well as Wally Workman Gallery in Austin. Recent exhibition of Dixon’s work include:Pleasure Studies at the Back Gallery Project in Vancouver and The Luxury of Observing Luxury at No Remorse Studio in Vancouver. Dixon also participated in the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Fuse in 2012. He has a forthcoming exhibition at the Wally Workman Gallery in Austin.
