Closing Reception for Michael Dotson CURVES @ Nudashank

Michael Dotson


Closing Reception Saturday, November 6

6 -9pm

Michael Dotson creates contemporary, synthetic landscapes that achieve a hi-tech sensibility through the use of low-tech media (paint and tape). Applying basic two-point perspective and color theory, Dotson creates vivid geometric simulations of imagined utopic environments. Interior and exterior virtual spaces are rendered with a hard-edged digital flatness that belies the fact that the work is made by the human hand.

From pimped out space-age cribs to a crashed, semi-submerged UFO in a crystal mountain lake, Dotson's imagery draws equally from video game nostalgia and idealized contemporary culture.

Also on view is a new series of pixelated marker drawings that turn universal pop symbology into personal iconography.
