T.J. Dixon and James Nelson
With a 25-year career as award-winning, large scale figurative sculptors in stone, bronze and terracotta, T.J. Dixon & James Nelson now direct the sculptor’s eye and sensibility to a series of photographic work. They “sculpt with light” through photographs that explore how pure, natural light sweeps and falls over simple, elemental form.
The Dixon-Nelson partnership has exhibited internationally — from San Diego to Germany — and they are the recipients of more that 25 years of public commissions, ranging from the playful stone and bronze cats and dogs commissioned by The City of San Diego for the Central Animal Shelter in San Diego to the profound 7-foot bronze figure included in the Wall of Remembrance AIDS Memorial Garden in Galveston, Texas. TJ Dixon & James Nelson’s The Shape of Light images are available as hand-signed, limited edition, exhibition-quality photographs in various sizes.
