In the Art Bar - Sandy Dixon

All the images in the paintings in this show are variations on the still-life.  The objects in each of the works are familiar, domestic and of little value in themselves.  In their natural state, as pots on a patio or jugs on a kitchen counter, they are hardly worth a second glance.  But by being arranged in a painting, by inhabiting a composition and being transformed with often unexpected color, they assume a new life.  In addition, some of the compositions are representational and objects are seen in a more or less normally accepted space.
