Dixie Taylor Purvis

Loft: E415


Dixie Taylor Purvis, who has a studio in Atlanta, is an abstract painter known for her large abstracts – oil on panel- and her quieter distilled landscapes. The large abstracts are remarkable for the strong and varied marks and the bold colors. The landscapes are also abstracted. They are simplified and exclude details, providing the viewer a sense of place rather than a specific place. They allow the viewer to personalize the landscape, to see it from their own experience. Dixie is represented by several galleries and has work in a large number of collections, been highlighted in a number of publications, and she has had a number of solo shows.
