Kathryn Dodd Kathryn Dodd makes paintings of haunting beauty. The graphic nature
of the work gives Dodd a degree of compositional freedom, allowing her
to produce some unusually striking arrangements and patterns, the likes
of which a less adventurous artist could not even begin to formulate.
But there is more here than mere pattern or sound technique: One must
dig down between the layers, looking for half-hidden truths and hinted-at
absences, to gain a sense of our spiritual and physical location, and
a sense of the history on which we intrude when we cut through the superficial
strata of our lives revealing the ancient core. Just as mark-making is
ancient, so it's continuation brings us to the present and projects us
beyond, reflecting the thread of humanity linking different times and
Dodd's work is currently at MOMA Wales, Machynlleth
