Los Angeles-based artist Tomory Dodge creates paintings that contain formal abstraction and representation within the same ground of the work. Dodge renders landscape environments that are fragmented and intentionally distilled. Often the disarray in his work is a reference to disaster and chaos as a potential force for transcendence. Dodge is a graduate of the California Institute of the Arts and Rhode Island School of Design. The artist has exhibited at the Knoxville Museum of Art and the CRG Gallery in New York and has a forthcoming exhibition this year with ACME in Los Angeles. Dodge was a grant recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA grant in 2004.
