One of the most provocative aspects of the word "landscape" is it's openness to interpretation. It can be literal, a traditional reference to the world around us or representational depictions of natural features.  It can be metaphorical, alluding to the responses of the human heart and mind to the environment.  And in some instances, landscape can describe the intersection of the physical and spiritual perception of a sense of place.
 
That is the landscape Mark Dickson paints- the region filtered through his acute understanding of the place in which he lives.  The result is lyrical abstraction, works on paper and paintings that combine luxurious surface texture with bursts of color.

Dickson was born in Boulder in 1946, a fifth-generation Coloradan who knows the impact of light and land on an artist.  Dickson earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1969 from the Metropolitan State College of Denver, then entered Pratt Institute's Graduate School of Fine Arts.
