MAC Art Galleries Conviction
A work of art should not only inspire, but also perfectly complement its surroundings. A large room is defined by what is in it. Beautiful furniture is only part of the equation; a work of art can transform a sophisticated room into something unforgettable. Rooms can be transformed with the thoughtful presence of well-curated visual art to make them both powerful and timeless.
What gallery owner Mary Ann Cohen says about Brixy
Dietmar Brixy layers thick, dreamy compositions, otherwise swirling strong lines to pieces that have a certain lightness and strength at the same time. In modern, contemporary homes with open floor plans, art really must be an aesthetic centrepiece, and Brixy adds a breathtaking touch to the home of a South Florida art collector.
Discover, 2014, Öl auf Nessel, 180 x 60 cm
The German artist forms large grooves of colour, layered in modern and elegant compositions. With his fingers he creates swirling, precise clouds that flow across the canvas. This is not simply finger painting, Brixy's movements require precision and an exact technique.
Discover, 2013, Öl auf Nessel, 160 x 50 cm
Brixy's ability to execute these precise methods by seamlessly inserting many primary and disparate shades of colour without mixing them into a continuous stroke is deceptive of his technical training as a sculptor. He effortlessly combines the subdued minimalist nuances of the desert with loud reds and cheerful yellows, starry pink with sea-like turquoise. Black figures heavily and effortlessly in his compositions. There are tree-like earthly scenes, but also otherworldly, geometric scenes that invite you to dream.
