Dixon, Bonnie

bonnie-dixon-personal-photo-for-webSomething catches my interest. I begin there. My pieces evolve, taking shape as a story unfolds. I weave the meanings I find and insights I have into my work like one of those Celtic knots until I run out of things to say. I describe my style as subjective realism. You may be familiar with the PBS radio show This I Believe –short essays about personal philosophies. That’s a generic title for all my pieces. Through paint, colored pencil, and natural objects such as gourds and goose eggs, my work expresses the truism that all things are connected. Shadows and reflections of objects outside the central focus are incorporated. Scenes are sometimes painted from the point of view of the subjects of the work itself to convey inner life. Through my work I attempt to reflect an essence of what I think, feel, experience and conceive in a visual way. 

You are invited to view more examples of my work at my website, www.zhibit.org/edenart and in Studio 7 with the River District Artists located at 12625 Lee Highway, Washington, VA. Open studio and gallery hours are: Thursday through Monday, 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM. Contact me at edenart@crosslink.net if you’d like to meet me there. You are invited to watch me work, and talk shop.
