LESS IS FOUR: ABSTRACT PAINTINGS BY TED DIXON
March 1 — April 29, 2023
What can we do? Where can we go? How many options will help achieve our desired results? Six paintings (40 by 30 inch) in this exhibit address these considerations.
Working intuitively, my work is influenced by past experiences and forward thoughts. Imbued with energy, shapes, and color, these abstract paintings (acrylic on canvas) are an effort to capture the seen and the unseen. I want to encourage the viewer to journey to a time and place where less is (more) four.
Opening Reception: Saturday March 18, 4-7pm
TED DIXON is a Rosendale-based artist. He has a particular interest in what enables or stimulates artistic expression. How do we learn to see what we cannot yet see? What are the things that influence our ability to perceive? His paintings can be described as abstract compositions influenced by personal experiences and efforts to capture moments in time that have a certain feeling and meaning.
Ted Dixon’s painting explores the encounter between physical and meditative experience. It aims to connect places and times – and integrates them to moods and feelings through energetic shapes and striking colors. He provides the viewer with an opportunity to experience “abstract” sensations… finding quiet, serenity, restlessness, or tension.
His work reflects the investment in the belief that less is more. And in today’s world of visual and verbal overload, he attempts to send the viewer on a journey of discovery and clarity across the painted surface.
“My goal is to create images that speak to a point in time that someone will embrace, be moved by, and cannot live without.” His work reflects the investment in the belief that less is more. And in today’s world of visual and verbal overload, he attempts to send the viewer on a journey of discovery and clarity across the painted surface.
Using a variety of applications, most of his work is based on acrylic on canvas, paper, and board.
