Tom Dixon

Three years ago (2008)  while visiting the Harwood Museum, Taos, NM,  I saw the work of an artist whose that took my breath.  Tom Dixon is an extraordinary painter living a very moderate life that affords him the freedom to paint exactly as he wishes.  While there is an obvious influence of the Abstract Expressionist methodology, the work is uniquely from the hand and heart of one person. Diane and I had the chance to spend an hour or so with a person who shares his beliefs in the most honest and gracious way.  What I treat it is to share thoughts with such a genuine person. If you are ever in Taos, NM be certain to see Tom’s work.  It can be seen at the 203 Fine Art Gallery   http://www.203fineart.com/index.html.

    Hi: trying to register for the blog via RSS but all I get is a page of html – seems to be a slight problem.

    Love the blog – a friend of mine took one of your courses recently (John Nussbaum) and was very complimentary – maybe I will make it one day.

      Hi Tony,

      Are you using Chrome or Safari by chance? Both those browsers display the RSS feed in its raw form, which looks like a lot of garbled code. Other browsers handle this differently.

      Your best bet is to copy and paste the feed url (http://skiplawrence.com/feed/) into your RSS reader. If you have more questions send me an email via the contact form on the “about” page and I’ll do my best to help!

    He is awesome.
    Tom is my brother and has been painting my entire lifetime. I am so proud of his pieces and honored to have one hanging in my home. Can’t wait to see his new work.

    I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with Tom and have learned how important simplifying your life is. I don’t know that I could ever get to the point his is at, being satisfied with the minimum of physical objects necessary to live. His work reflects this commitment. It’s beauty is inspiring, and the process he goes through to achieve it, the honesty, the simplicity, the integrity, and of course, talent, are evident.

      Peter, I read your reply about Tom Dixon. How simple is his life? personally I’m sick of ‘stuff’, but my husband isn’t. You’ve met him, so are you aware of his influences…. philosophy on making art…where he gets his ideas…I’m so blown away by his art.

    In 1991—I met Tom Dixon—he was just getting started in Taos—I just bought a second home there and he needed furniture—I traded furniture in the new house for one of his paintings—lucky me!!—I still have the painting—I later bought more—his work is awesome—so is he.

    He gives me confidence in what I’m trying to do…
    Palette magazine is my #1 “push” to continue.
