Northwest Wild and Fresh
Opens Sundays noon-3pm in April
An art show of Angie Dixon's sumi ink paintings
The FoodArt Collection is proud to present a show of new sumi ink paintings celebrating the abundance of wild and fresh foods available in the Pacific Northwest from Seattle artist Angie Dixon.
My artwork is inspired by the energy that runs through all nature. Asian Brush and Ink Painting has a quality that is like no other art form. It translates the vitality of nature into dancing brushstrokes that are alive and go beyond depiction and capture the subject's essence.
The expressive quality of brush and ink captivated me while I was in art school and continues to amaze and fascinate me with how what appears to be minimal can hold and say so much.
These pieces are of the wild nature of the Pacific Northwest that nourishes us emotionally, psychologically and physically.
