british artist jeremy dickinson is just wrapping up his latest solo show at galerie xippas in athens, greece. the show features large and small works by the london based painter all focusing on his passion for transportation. dickinson’s work features methodical and meticulous reproductions of cars, buses and trucks. he paints these vehicles in a realistic style that eventually reveals that they are in fact miniature toys that are reproductions of actual objects. some of the small models are from dickinson’s childhood, while others were later added to his collection. the toys are arranged in a variety of ways form being stacked on top of each other to thematic groupings, set against solid neutral colour backgrounds. his work ‘alludes both to the collector's obsession with the object of his passion and to the adult's wish to revive a memory and immortalize its content.
