A South African artist whose training in printmaking has extended into installation, Dixie’s work is predominantly focussed on two interlinked concerns, the visual strategies deployed in frontier landscape representation and the narratives used in constructing images of gender. Her work is intent on drawing the viewer into a mesmeric yet disquieting space. A deceptively calm surface is disrupted by an undercurrent, a counter-narrative that threatens to disrupt a tenuous vision of logic and stability. Her installations embrace multiple mediums including sculpture, embroidery and video but often originate in the medium of print.
