Willard Dixon
Black Square / yoga - oil on cancas

2015

$3,500

About

Woman doing yoga, stretching, leaf, torn paper color composition featured in this delightful still life oil on canvas painting. In this series of trompe-l'œil oil paintings, Willard Dixon realistically recreates images of mundane objects taped to colored walls, creating a minimalistic impression that the objects exist in three dimensions. As with his other series'—landscape, skyscape and still life—Dixon’s signature calm and humble approach is paramount. This trompe l’oeil series exhibits a certain wit, perhaps due to the unassuming objects represented, including old rumpled notes scribbled across torn college-ruled paper, feathers, discarded ribbons, playing cards, and artist's drawings. The paintings are a study in form and color, with mysteries for the viewer to unravel while enjoying these optical illusions that truly “fool the eye.” Dixon’s work can be found in numerous distinctive private and public collections, as well as the San Francisco Museum of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. Keywords: leaf, blue, brown, red, photorealism, yoga, excercise, dancer
