Artist Statement

Interested in the strange appeal of everyday objects a common thematic throughout Dodd’s work is to look for the transcendental within the banal. His practise involves wandering. Looking for that which provides the spark of intrigue. That which can be easily missed. Yet which quickly becomes the source of fascination. Dodd’s ambition as an artist is to capture this fleeting experience and hope that it will offer respite from the sameness of everyday life. During his wanderings, Dodd is attracted to vivid colours, textural contrasts and unusual patterns that can all be found by looking closely with an artistic eye.
