James Dodd: Pigment High - Art Collector

  Local Adelaide artist, James Dodd is showing with Hugo Michell Gallery for this year’s SALA Festival. In his most recent body of work, Dodd takes a microscope to the scrapes, incisions and assorted ruptured surfaces of the urban surfaces he trawls for subject matter. Snippets of semi-legible text appear scattered throughout the works like drunken stream-of-consciousness prose indelibly marked on the back of a toilet door. Here Dodd wallows about in a pigment high, avoiding any commitment to pictorial representation, and relishing an opportunity to travel abstractly.

Exhibition opens: 6pm Thursday 23 July 2015
