Over the Influence is proud to announce Andy Dixon’s Southeast Asian debut with Wow! More Sizes Upstairs which features twenty new paintings from the esteemed artist.

Size matters. Or does it? An age-old question asked of everything from historical monuments and sports cars to survey samples and physical stature. A range similar in scope and scale to Andy Dixon’s oeuvre that references artifacts, motifs, and tropes as esoteric and obscure as Greek mythology and as contemporary and campy as Elmo and Versace. The twenty works in Dixon’s latest exhibition attempt not necessarily to answer this eternal debate but to interrogate and explore its relevance to the process and production of fine art.
Each painting in, Wow! More Sizes Upstairs is titled by size, extra small, small, medium, and large, just as if they were articles of clothing. Dixon’s interest in calling attention to the oft-overlooked fact that the art industry, despite its metaphysical trappings, has more in common than not with other luxury markets, such as fashion, is evidenced by his paintings and sculptures over the last ten years. His 10-foot canvas Hermès shirt and ceramic-initial embellished Louis Vuitton bag come immediately to mind, but also his patrons’ homes series depicting interiors laden with fine art objects, including his own, and his vase paintings based on images from Google searches for expensive vases. “It’s one of the most unregulated markets on the planet,” says Dixon.

Exploring themes of decadence, patronage, and the relationship between art and wealth, Andy Dixon draws inspiration from such opulent artifacts as Flemish still-lifes, Versace silk shirts, and auction house objects. By layering historical references with contemporary social commentary, Dixon plays with the tropes of art history and questions the inherent value in luxuries from past and present. Dixon was born in 1979 in Vancouver, Canada. A self-taught painter, Dixon turned to fine arts after years as a professional musician. His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and art fairs internationally including Beers, London, UK (2018); Wilding Cran, Los Angeles, CA, USA (2018); Pulse Miami, FL, USA (2017); and Volta, New York, NY, USA (2017). Dixon’s work is in notable collections worldwide including the Walton Family Private collection, Crystal Bridges, AR, USA, and the West Collection, Philadelphia, PA, USA.
