Currently working out of Vancouver, Canada, Andy Dixon's work contrasts refined subject matter with a coarse application of his materials.
"Emerging from the greyscale city of Vancouver, Andy Dixon's sumptuous, hypnotic paintings are riots of colour. The artist combines outrageous satire with authentic pathos, resulting in endlessly inventive, altogether otherworldly work. His virtuosic command of colour, all at once rampant and studied, stamps his subject on the viewer like a lived experience. Rarely do still lives seem so livid, or portraits so present, as they do in Dixon's uncanny eye. He gives us back the familiar forms of history and art, transformed with startling, fearful freshness."
