about the artist

Dickson looks for beauty in everyday scenes as he focuses on pattern, scale, alternative viewpoints, and people's relationships to a given subject matter. In keeping with the historic perspective, Dickson will utilize traditional and Victorian film processing methods in the development of his residency work.
