”This work based on a painting from my most recent solo show in New York with the Journal Gallery. It was titled Getting your Meds and the title was meant to reflect the humour in that need to dress up to provoke or feel alive, especially within a mundane life. I painted it loosely based on a photograph of some trousers that were listed on ebay. Velvet wranglers, to be specific.”

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.
”It was the only print form I’d never tried before and it’s also the mother of all printing forms, isn’t it? I don’t know whether it’s true but I feel like it’s the big one. The serious one. And also being a painter I felt like it was going to be a great feeling that I could really paint onto the stone and I could make the image directly. I loved it, it felt very comfortable.”
