Dixon has been making films since the 1960s, when he was part of the New York underground scene, and has made more than 400 films and experimental videos to date. In 2003, Dixon was honored with a retrospective of his films at The Museum of Modern Art, where his films have been acquired for the permanent collection.

"There are already enough images in the world. In my videos, I prefer to use existing imagery, playing with it to the point of abstraction to create an otherworldly experience. Although the original images are rooted in the real world, the final product exists in a phantom zone, existing only as long as the image is projected on the screen. At the same time, I hope to seduce the viewer into believing that however unreal these images are, they still have some sort of temporal reality. It is this gap between the actual and the imagined that informs all of my work." - Wheeler Winston Dixon
