Tomory Dodge at Alison Jacques Gallery from March 26th


Tomory Dodge?s canvases recall the sublime through an abstract and seductive use of colour and movement. The compositional negotiation between beauty and destruction suggests the artist?s preoccupation with catastrophe, rapture, transcendence and rebirth…Looking at them feels like enjoying the calm before the storm. –Artforum

For his new exhibition at Alison Jacques Gallery, LA-based artist Tomory Dodge has developed his unique exploration of the terrain between abstract and representational painting, extending the frontiers of his practice into vigorous and expansive territories. The gallery space is dominated by three major new diptychs and a number of large-scale single works which deploy symmetry as a strategy to open the canvas up into a wider field of painterly enquiry. The exhibition also includes a number of smaller oil on canvas works and works on paper. The works reveal Dodge?s profound investigation into the compositional anxieties attendant on abstraction, whilst still maintaining a command of vibrant chromatic orchestration, and his characteristically suggestive appeals to visual remembrances of the lived-in world.

The exhibition is held at the Alison Jacques Gallery from 26 March – 24 April 2010
