Eye Candy: Stephanie Dotson

February 17, 2010

I first saw Stephanie Dotson’s work at the Green Door Gallery in 2004.  Stephanie was part of a three woman show titled, “Anemisis”, which featured her framed collage pieces and wall installations.   I walked into the gallery space and was immediately struck by one of her stunning installations  – swirls of paper wafted down to the floor with the fluidity of fabric, printed and hand drawn images were layered over one another to create a unified surface that was mercurial – hiding some things while revealing others.  I thought she was a total badass then and I remain utterly besotted by her artwork now.

Ms. Dotson deftly combines printmaking, drawing, painting and cut paper to create exquisite, well-crafted pieces that have an almost animated presence and physicality.  Stephanie utilizes an array of textures, decorative elements and graphic line drawing to create a dialogue between 2D and 3D spaces.  Her installations don’t coyly sit in their respective corners, but rather drip, drape, spin and burst out at the viewer – issuing an invitation to come closer and have a better look.

You can see more of Stephanie Dotson’s artwork on her website, and at the David Shelton Gallery.
