Lucy Dodd (*1981) has created a painterly universe that can be understood as a radical reinterpretation of lyrical abstraction and action painting. Her works—biomorphic topographies of random and intentional marks—resemble painted evocations of cosmological and spiritual landscapes. They are characterized by an emphatically process-oriented approach to painting and the use of unusual color pigments, which often derive from nature and Dodd’s personal environment. Exhibitions by the artist, who lives in Woodstock, New York, often incorporate elements of ritual and theater.
