Our 2018 Hans Hofmann Artist in Residence is Los Angeles–based abstract painter Tomory Dodge, who will spend his time in the Barn doing works on paper. His early landscape-like paintings—based on photographs of swamps and deserts, clouds and trees, appliances and explosions—have slowly given way to pure abstraction, the canvases covered with hybrid gestures that he creates by laying down a mark and then altering it, a process that has become even more important in his recent mirrored images. His robust, sensual handling of paint has earned him comparisons to Joan Mitchell and Gerhard Richter. Learn more about his Twenty Summers residence here.
