Anders Dickson


Wschód, Warsaw
20 September - 19 October, 2019



The opening of the exhibition is taking place during Warsaw Gallery Weekend 2019.

Dickson’s works create its own hallucinatory and extraordinarily diverse world, which has been determined by elements of American culture (from Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, to the Native American figure of the ‘Trickster’), mythology, philosophy or urban, public and domestic spaces. Dickson’s visceral motifs interweave with each other creating deeply intricate compositions. His drawings and paintings roil with intense colors, abstract figures, dense landscapes. His sculptural works (objects, installations) seem a surreal extension of them but also a representation of artist’s highly concerted imagination. ‘Songs of rain and hobo chili’ is where all of that will intertwine.
