Erotica // Wednesday, April 16, 2014
'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 color remove their idealism, accenting an alternative beauty found within the imperfection and humanity of both the subject and the artist simultaneously.'
