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 lives.
