FRAGMENTATIONS by Leah Dixon
for immediate release
BLAISE + CO. CONTEMPORARY ART PRESENTS : FRAGMENTATIONS BY LEAH DIXON
WATERMILL, NY — Following the success of Blaise + Co. Contemporary Art’s July presentation of “Felix Bonilla Gerena: Loves of Bajura,” we are pleased to present FRAGMENTATIONS, a bespoke exhibition of recent works for sale by multi-media artist Leah Dixon at the Old Stone Boys Club. Opening on AUGUST 14th with a COCKTAIL VIEWING FROM 6 TO 9PM, Fragmentations will remain on view by appointment through the end of the month.
Installed at the Old Stone Boys Club, a privately-owned alternative space displaying a rotating selection of rare automobiles, Dixon’s work creates a graphic and colorful backdrop to iconic examples of Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini. Removed from the commercial gallery setting, these intricate works ring true to the Blaise + Co. hallmark of promoting emerging Contemporary artists in non-traditional spaces.
Dixon’s collaged paintings bravely articulate the experience of being bombarded with images of terrorism by the media. Rejecting the literal or narrative, Dixon relies on her love of geometry to reconstruct the most tangible evidence of an act of destruction - the exploding bomb. Pages torn from recent issues of ArtForum and National Geographic Magazine are carefully sliced into tiles of abbreviated color and imagery, then paneled and layered into strips of abstraction. While Dixon’s creative process is itself a quietly meditative act, these hours of meticulous craft culminate in the visual detonation of a loud and destructive force. Each painting is comprised countless scale-shifts - fragments expanding simultaneously into the reconfigured concept of an explosion.
Leah Dixon will be present at the viewing.
