Andy Dixon paints with Bosschaert’s Belgium, affectations from Matisse and Rousseau and motifs from Veronese Renaissance Italy all at play by his easel. And yet, these historical influences are expressed with refreshing contemporaneity. Recently relocated from Vancouver to New York, Dixon approaches his elite subject matter with shocking hues and a daring attitude to the application of paint. His first solo show in New York, Leisure Studies, pushes beyond the aristocratic tableaux of Dixon’s earlier paintings to depict pure action.
