(b 1967United Kingdom. Lives and works in London)
Adam Dix’s paintings depict a borderland between the virtual and real world, while exploring how humanity adapts to new modes of communication. His work traverses a landscape of analogue and digital media through a blend of traditional folk customs, religious ceremony, and contemporary mass media. His palette of muted colours, hazy imagery and nostalgic subject matter anchor the work in a time of historical optimism. Overall, his paintings invite the viewer to engage in a secular celebration, whilst questioning past and present forms of ‘social networking’.
