Art Space Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Fresno-based artist Audia Yvonne Dixon (b. 1992) who creates large scale, atmospheric oil paintings that reflect on Black girlhood and the nostalgia of childhood. Dixon engages the history of painting, depicting the inner worlds and emotional states of her subjects, who recline and play in ambiguous landscapes that are lush and dreamlike while containing hints of ecological threat.
