"When You Least Expect It " is a monumental vertical abstract piece by one of America’s top collected artists, Amy Dixon.
Customarily, Amy paints first on loose canvas, this piece is custom stretched size at the artist's final vision of 63 x 43 in. inches. Framed in a champagne floater, the final overall dimensions come to 65 x 45 x 2 in.
This abstract painting of vibrant color colors set on a gray and blue backdrop gives the allure of an ethereal
landscape for the viewer to get lost in. Pops of corals, reds and soft blueish greens create depth and brings the eye in to be surrounded by the cool blue waters below and the and azure sky above.
Born and raised in Louisiana, Colorado-based artist Amy Dixon studied studio art and painting at the Newcomb College of Tulane University, and completed her post-graduate studies at Studio Art Center International in Florence, Italy. In addition, she has taken masters classes with Kim English in Denver, as well as participated in workshops by Wolf Kahn in New York. Her work has twice been featured on the front cover of The Aspen Times, and the February/March 2014 edition of Traditional Home. In addition, Dixon has published two books with Pelican Publishing Co, "The Cajun Night After Christmas," and "Who’s Tripping Under My Bridge?"
Amy creates a particular dialogue with the viewer as her work embraces the uncertainties life has to offer and an inquisitive eye. In order to create movement in her work, she focuses on living in the present moment and following her creative impulses as she encounters them.
