Drew Dodge creates paintings that depict figures–part human, part canine, and part bovine–that are engaged in mischievous activities amidst dirt, mud, hay, blood, and waste. Circular forms of moons and hay bales contrast with the wiry texture of hay, splintered wood, and the figures’ coats. By softening the bristly texture of his colorful creatures, Dodge balances chaos, ecstasy, and pain with a sense of serenity and hope.
