Tomory Dodge

Tomory Dodge   Imaginary Conversations With Others  2015  oil on canvas  72" x 72"

Tomory Dodge's new show at ACME is reason enough for me to want to go to LA for the day just to see this show. I think he is one of the best painters in LA today. His abstract mash ups of formal abstraction, allusion to figuration and landscape have always struck a chord with me. Here is an artist that has acknowledged the history of painting, digested it, and came up with an authentic voice in the medium. Always solid even when the work is a bit gangly.


  1. I think his work gets a bit more gangly each year. His first years were my favorite works. Still I never miss a Dodge show and agree that he is one of LA's finest.
