Andy Dixon’s Look at This Stuff Isn’t It Neat at Joshua Liner Gallery #ArtTuesday
Excited to swing by this exhibition to see these pieces up close and personal and really get a feel for them! Between Andy Dixon‘s use of color and the into from Joshua Liner Gallery we’re already hooked:
The exhibition title cites lyrics from “Part of Your World,” a song from Disney’s 1989 animated film, The Little Mermaid. As the title suggests, Look at This Stuff Isn’t It Neat features paintings that explore the human desire to collect and covet objects, simultaneously referring to the opulent commodities depicted on the canvases and the paintings themselves. Dixon describes his representations of luxury objects as a “never-ending chain of alchemy,” because as the artist states, “a Flemish still life—a depiction of luxury objects—becomes its own luxurious object, and my depiction of this still life painting becomes its own luxury object.”
