Description: Lois Dodd
(American, b.1927)
untitled (Can't See the End Table for the Trees)
oil on canvas
Fischbach, NY gallery label verso. From an private collector, Indianapolis, IN. There is an arc of what looks to be paint, visible in the lower center. There seems to be light water/paint splatter, mainly in the lower right quadrant. There is light wear/scuffing along the outer edges. From askART: A painter of New England landscape, Lois Dodd is fascinated by shapes, and much of her work has geometric emphasis. Her subject matter includes windows, doorways, stairwells, barns, tree landscapes, rivers, and woods, and it explores a world of both her psyche and physical surroundings. She excludes human figures, but the human presence is everywhere because of the included objects. Her work is a unique immersion in regionalism through modernist eyes. For two decades from the mid 1970s to the mid-1990s, she was Chair of the Art Department at Brooklyn College in New York and developed its graduate program in painting. In 1996, a traveling exhibition of her work was organized called "Lois Dodd: 25 Years of Painting," and some of its venues were the Trenton City Museum and the Montclair Museum in New Jersey.
