A solo exhibition of photographic art work by Thomas Dodd – a visual artist and photographer based out of Atlanta, Georgia who has developed a style that he calls “painterly photo montage”. Dodd’s work draws from mythic and quasi-religious themes that pay homage to Old Master art traditions while at the same time drawing from more modern movements like Surrealism and Symbolism.
Although his artwork resembles paintings, his pieces are entirely photographic in nature, fusing many images into a cohesive whole. His works are often presented in a mixed media “encaustic” form that adds a depth and texture that complements the photography beautifully.
