Wendy Dixon-Whiley is a Visual Artist working in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia With a Bachelor of Illustration Design and Master of Visual Art and Creative Practice, Wendy has participated in multiple group and solo exhibitions in Australia and internationally. Wendy is most often found working from her Hahndorf Academy in South Australia. She is best known in the Adelaide Hills for her large scale street art projects and her work is held in private collections in Adelaide and overseas.
Wendy Dixon-Whiley’s energetic but considered works are executed in multiple mediums and scales as she works to find the best modes of expressing an internal visual universe of figures, marks and symbols. Tracing her influences back to the 80’s street art as well as graphic illustrative styles from the 90’s popular culture, Dixon-Whiley domesticates at times dark and morbid social and religious themes through absurd and nonsensical forms. Her practice incorporates drawing, painting, installation and experimental methods to these ideas to life.
Dixon-Whiley distills her imagery through a process of working with unbroken and unhesitant mark-making through to more detailed illustrative works.
Hayes Family Wines Cellar Door is currently exhibiting a selection of Wendy Dixon-Whiley’s pieces. All pieces are available for purchase.
