Dix, Michael

I was born in Stoke on Trent in 1975 but moved to Dundee in 1980 where I have spent my most formative years. In 1998 I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design with a degree in Interior and Environmental Design.

Working within the mediums of both Art and Design has given me a highly analytical perspective. Unusual mediums, subject matter and execution are all carefully considered before I start an artwork, this is the same rigorous approach I apply to design work.

Challenging the viewer’s perception of space and scale are key ideas in my work. My paintings invite the viewer to reconsider beauty in the most overlooked, tiniest subject matter. It is my intention to pull you into my ‘microcosm’ through the considered play of the subject matter, especially in regards to it’s scale, hyper-realism and placing in its background.
