Biographical Information
Mark Douglas Dicey ~ [b.1959] Canadian
see artist's website at www.markdicey.ca
From his website statement: Mark Dicey Studio is located on the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) + the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikuni, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina, + the Iyarhe Nakoda First Nations. Calgary/Moh’kinsstis is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.

Mark Dicey is a painter. His field of interest is in abstraction/nonrepresentational work. Studio work, reading and general consciousness of this chosen discipline (painting history and abstraction in particular) are on going and critical to his practice. The everyday world is absorbed and brought into the making and thinking process: colours, shapes, textures and structural relationships.

For Dicey, the reactionary relationship that takes place in the painting process is twofold:
1. the day to day observances (memory) are filtered, reconfigured and applied (consciously/unconsciously);
2. the interaction with what is taking place with the medium, assessing and pursuing what is evolving, observing, guiding, controlling, manipulating, questioning, confirming.

For Dicey, the work he makes and the creative process itself are states of flux and relational conversation. Knowledge of important painters who came before such as Hans Hoffman, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaller, Cy Twombly, Jack Bush and Marion Nicoll as well as living contemporary artists such as Mary Heilmann and Brice Marden (to only name a few) is of utmost importance to Dicey’s ongoing investigation, questioning and development.
