Ramey Dixon - Artist Statement

My artwork is created based on a process that first starts with the feelings, emotions and my life experiences how I am able to channel them. With the application of acrylic paint in the category of Abstract Art. I am able to begin layering, blending and accenting the canvas to create contrast, depth and the doorway for the viewer to enter my world. By layering I generate distinction and dimension to arouse the imagination by applying paint in strategic locations. In the blending process I use water or a wet on wet technique to establish movement, flow and vibrancy. Lastly, accenting through numerous different applications allows structure and desired affects. I paint because it is the one outlet that I have discovered that allows me to be completely free, content and gives me purpose. The last 3 years have been the best with art transforming my life.
