Andrew Nixon’s paintings explore stillness, time, and light. His influences range from ancient Egyptian sculpture to the paintings of Danish Modernist Wilhelm Hammershøi. A native of Rhode Island, he holds a BFA degree from the School of Visual Arts at Boston University and an MFA from Indiana University’s Hope School of Fine Arts.
Nixon’s paintings have been widely exhibited in numerous one-person and group shows in the United States and Europe. His work is in the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, the Newport Art Museum, the Stewartry Museum in Scotland, and several corporate collections. He is a winner of the 2012-13 Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant.
He has taught studio art for many years, most recently to medical students at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
