The Domestic Engagements of Wolcott Dodge


  • Speedwell Projects 630 Forest Avenue Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

Opening reception with performance by Lawrence Kovacks on organ.

Wolcott Dodge's painting and collages, as well as his found objects, merge an interest in modernist painting and assemblage, with a fascination for obsessive collecting and recycling. This exhibition reveals Dodge's democratic love for all materials, texture and pattern. A true romantic and collector, his work hearkens back to the collections of 19th century cabinets of curiosity, and his re-contexualized objects resonate with a sense of nostalgia for a past once lived, and a value long forgotten.
