Yes, it is January and I’m dreaming of summer vacation.  I am so ready to hang up the winter coats, and dig out the beachwear!

These wonderfully quirky paintings are by Australian artist Maz Dixon.  Dixon’s series Holiday Attraction and sequel Colony, are based on kitschy vintage postcards.  She explores how these mass-produced souvenir images influence our views on destinations, in particular, Australia.  By removing the context, the viewer is allowed to dream up their own narrative.  They are just so fun.  Love!

Visit Dixon’s website for more, and check out Art Pharmacy, where she has artworks available for purchase.
