Dodge's recent paintings have become more abstracted than previous ones, yet they are unified by an organizing symmetry evocative of Rorschach inkblots. In Untitled, nearly identical halves of a colorful landscape seem to teeter ominously as the blue horizon line gives way to darkening clouds, while at the bottom of the picture plane, two windows reveal a glowing fire within. Dodge alludes to a landscape without creating a space to recede into.Read Less
About the Artist
About Tomory Dodge
Tomory Dodge has recently moved away from representation and into abstraction, creating works that lack spatial references but allude to the familiar. Drawn from photographic sources as well as imagination and memory, he applies masses of paint in bold, fluid gestures to create often viscerally charged scenes. While the paintings may appear, in the words of critic Bob Nickas, to be the product of "spontaneous combustion," they are, in fact, the product of months of deliberate work, "of intention rather than intuition."
In 1998, Dodge received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and in 2004, he received his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. His work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at CRG Gallery in New York, NY, and the Knoxville Museum of Art, TN, among other venues. He has also been included in group exhibitions at institutions in Berlin, Germany; Liverpool, UK; and Los Angeles, CA.Read Less
