Polly Dixon 'One Year On'

12th - 19th April 2019

The gallery is pleased to host Polly Dixon's solo show following her success at the Graduate Exhibition in the gallery last year. It is so exciting to see artist's work developing at the start of their artistic journey.

Polly Dixon bases her work on the appropriation and extraction of elements from Renaissance Art to produce compositions which explore contemporary family relationships. She focuses on dysfunction, betrayal, jealousy, deceit and disbelief. She is interested in the interplay between the whimsical and the serious, the imagined and reality, exposing false belief and confessing the truth. Her narratives seek to investigate the hidden emotions, conflict and secrets which exist within the family from an autobiographical view.  

Using traditional methods of printmaking, she presents overly large woodcuts alongside small, detailed intaglio prints. This, she feels demonstrates the duality of life; the large towering over the small, power and insignificance, shame and glory.

Featured Artist Matt Pearce


Matt Pearce is a recent graduate from the University of Creative Arts and joined the gallery in 2015. Matt is a figurative painter working predominantly in acrylic and on highly textured surfaces. His current work is concerned with body art and the human condition.
