Clarissa Dixon is a painter-printmaker and a gallery assistant at Studio Eleven.
She produces abstracted paintings and prints informed by photographs taken around Hull; focusing on texture, pattern and small details around the city. The work is very focused on the materials and process with emphasis on texture and surface.
When printmaking she mainly uses collagraph printmaking as it can produce a variety of textures and allows better control over the shape of the printing plate. With painting she enjoys experimenting with paint, its application and how materials can be added to it (such as plaster or cement) for textured effects.
