Wolcott Dodge

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. The show reveals his wildly democratic love for all materials, texture and pattern. A true romantic and collector, Dodge hearkens back to the collections of 19th century cabinets of curiosity, and his recontexualized objects resonate with a sense of nostalgia for a past once lived, a value long forgotten.
