Dixon’s work is rooted in observational and experimental drawing practices, and her maximalist paintings are formed from drawing fragments, which parallel the way memories are accessed and change over time. While the pieces may be called paintings, Dixon considers them to be more representative of the fundamental properties of drawing, that is to say, comprised of a tornado of linear marks, and never finished. The subject matter is deeply personal, conveying at once a sense of loss, wonder, nostalgia, confusion, humor, and melancholy.
