Grey Ocean

2020

US$10,000

About

Unique contemporary 'Grey Ocean' depicts a provocative grey sky with a blue, yellow and white sea. Choppy waters beneath a sky alive with filtered early evening light and unknown impending weather from American Realist Willard Dixon. The unique work bridges realism with surrealism, and perhaps reflects the "mood of a nation", in the year in which it was created — 2020 The sky-scape hung at the de Young Museum of Art in San Francisco's 'Bay Area Open' exhibition in 2020-2021. The painting is framed and is ready to hang and enjoy over a lifetime. 48 x 48 inches. Signed and dated by the artist. Condition is excellent as new. One of our finest American contemporary realist painters, Willard Dixon has painted Northern California and western landscapes for over 35 years. His work captures the undeniable beauty of the West with its grand and humble spirit. The same sensitivity can be found in Dixon’s urban street scenes that offer viewers a resting place to contemplate our rapidly changing world, and his portraiture, which largely focuses on his artist friends and illustrious colleagues. Willard Dixon’s works are included in prominent private and museum collections worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA), and the Oakland Museum of California Art. From Andra Norris Gallery in California.
