GALERIE CHLOE SALGADO is pleased to invite you to The nearer the ground, the louder it sounds, Stevie Dix’s first solo exhibition in France.
For The nearer the ground, the louder it sounds, Stevie Dix will present a new series of paintings, both dark and nostalgic, as well as her first ceramic pieces, depicting an exhilaratingly world of permissiveness.
Stevie Dix (1990, Genk) is a self-taught Belgian artist, living and working in Suffolk, England.
After growing up in Genk, a small former coal mining town to artist parents, Stevie Dix moved to London in 2010 to immerse herself in a more creative environment, and briefly studied at the alternative art school Turps Banana (2016-2017). She then moves a second time to Suffolk to join Asylum Studios, artist studios based on a former Royal Air Force airbase.
Expressing herself through undiluted oil painting, occasionally mixed with impasto, Stevie Dix has developed a raw, sensitive and bold practice, which she describes as autobiographical and introspective. Between abstraction and figuration, she uses, and sometimes not without obsession, easily identifiable symbols to evoke universal suffering.
She presents her first solo exhibition, La Mauvaise Réputation, in 2016 at the Collectiv National gallery in Antwerp. The following year, in 2017, after a solo exhibition in London, England I Love You, But You’re Brining Me Down at the Rob Barton Gallery, she presents two solo exhibitions in the USA: Conceived In El Coyote, at The Cabin, Los Angeles, and Tennis Elbow, at The Journal Gallery, New York City. In 2018, she presents two more solo exhibitions: Desert, at Nevven Gallery, Gothenburg, Sweden, and The Devil’s In The Details, at L21 Gallery, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
The nearer the ground, the louder it sounds, at GALERIE CHLOE SALGADO, is Stevie Dix’s seventh solo exhibition, and her first one in France. All the works presented were created especially for the exhibition.
