Artist Statement

Shrouded in dreamlike memories of his childhood in the Philippines, Dodie infuses the sights and emotions of his memories onto the canvas. A deep need to express his enigmatic visions led him to create works that invoke both the beauty and imperfections we encounter in our lives.
Colors bleeding serenely together while reacting to one another are amplified by strokes of darkness to convey opposing memories of both the natural beauty and urban decay visible in the Philippines. The complexity of blossoming florals, inspire ethereal colorways and ascending patterns that transcribe his introspection into our consciousness.
