Philip Martins, Los Angeles, is developing a Viewing rooms series with quotes by the artists about their artworks.
Today focus on Tomory Dodge
Tomory Dodge (b. 1974, Denver, CO) has become known for dynamic paintings that explore the representation and mechanics of picture-making.
He writes, “I have often talked about paintings being inherently contradictory things. They are objects that are spaces, walls that are windows. They are the intersection of object and image. Painting maintains a physical anchor at a time when the image generally is becoming more and more ethereal—everywhere and nowhere at the same time.”
