Deep Down, Drew Dodge Is Otherworldly

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

1969 Gallery is pleased to present Deep Down, Drew Dodge’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. The title of the exhibition connects Dodge’s innermost consciousness and core with the depths of the earth and its landscape. Throughout the exhibition, anthropomorphic figures seek and discover bull skulls, which Dodge re-presents as intimate memory-holding vessels that are empathetic, absorbent, quiet and sexual, unveiling another dimension to the opaque symbol that demands masculinity, ambition and death. The figures identify with the skull, infusing it with a soulfulness, which is how Dodge considers his own body, purpose and momentariness.
