Leah Shane Dixon
Leah Shane Dixon (Shane) is a artist in multiple media, whose diverse body of work explores fusion of oppositional polarities, transcendental themes, abstract symbolism, and humankind’s unique role within the natural world. A graduate of Pratt Institute and the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, Shane draws from their bi-coastal life experience, informed by the rich tapestry of artistic, historic, cultural, literary, musical and filmic trends of both Los Angeles and New York City. A second generation computer geek, Shane fuses the practices of digital- and video-based art making with the foundation art practices of drawing, painting, installation, and photography. In addition to their active art practice, Shane has curated many group art shows and other curatorial projects in Long Beach and Los Angeles.
Shane’s art has been seen at the Rubin Museum of Art (NYC), Shoshana Wayne Gallery (Santa Monica), Flower Pepper Gallery (Pasadena, CA), MuzeuMM (LA), OCCCA (Santa Ana, CA), Stone Ridge Center for the Arts (Kingston, NY), the Beacon Arts Building (Inglewood, CA), Torrance Art Museum (Torrance, CA), Balconi Coffee Company (Santa Monica) and the Hotel Maya (Long Beach, CA). Their curatorial projects have been seen at Coagula Curatorial (LA) and Art Exchange (Long Beach, CA). Shane’s studio is at Angels Gate Cultural Center in San Pedro.
