Saxon’s work takes a cue from the asphalt sprawl streetscapes of our cities. Inspired by his travels to New York City and other bustling metropolis, his explorations use the medium of cement plaster as a literal elucidation of the experienced environment. An urban narrative of monolithic shapes, line work of differing rhythm, geometry, proportion and markings. Saxon has grown to love the process of distressing on surfaces that occurs over time; pavements worn by the pedestrian’s footsteps, weathering elements of nature or human error. Each individual mark ends up being an intersection of sorts, much like scarred skin on a body, a portal to an experience. Saxon is an emerging artist from Melbourne who grew up in country Victoria, about 25km from Daylesford. He’s completed a Bachelor of Communication Design at Swinburne University, 2008 – 2009 and also an Advanced Diploma of Communication Design at Ballarat School of Minds, 2006 – 2007. Saxon has had several solo exhibitions and draws from the urban environment, reinterpreting them as bold, two dimensional representations using cement plaster as his main medium.

“I paint to stand still.” Saxon draws inspiration from his own state-of-mind and surroundings, whether that be personal hurdles or distractions, family, friends, the countryside or cityscapes. “The more I paint, the more I feel that my works represent that balance - Amongst the worn, rough, stained and sporadic marks, there's a sense of calm and balance. I want to continue to harvest this and express it.”
