Stevie Dix’s oils on canvas are bold and gestural, composed in an essential style where simple objects and minimalistic compositions are elevated to symbols and metaphors for intimate feelings and, at times, political perspectives. Growing up in a household of artists, Dix spent a lot of her days in her mother’s studio learning to sew costumes and to draw and paint. By translating introspection into a coming-of-age theme, she aims to hit a universal nerve, drawing influence from the Belgian Surrealists and the Chicago Imagists.
