How to Throw a Curve

PRESENTED ON FEB 07, 2019
IN DAYTON @ VOL 38

Deborah Dixon's art has brought large women out of the closet since the early 80's. She draws, paints and sculpts full-figured females as a way of self-healing, rebellion, and to make a social statement that all bodies are beautiful and amazing. Through her large, brightly colored paintings and sensuously drawn images, viewers are encouraged to confront their prejudices, assumptions and messages about being fat in our culture. For those who are large themselves, her work is often empowering, and a chance to see themselves as beautiful, and complete as they are.
