Exhibition: Codified Color
Dodd graduate students Mary Gordon, Christina Foard, and Nick Abrami employ color as a means to examine personal histories. Gordon’s wood and wire installations recall childhood play and discovery. Foard’s paintings engage domesticity, imagining the noisy back-and-forth of familial conversations throughout the years. Abrami’s ceramic forms serve as markers, half-monuments, that memorialize specific times and places significant to the artist. Color coding acts as a way to create new symbols and references, allowing for various adjacencies between the three artists. While diverse in content and material, the artists engage color to highlight the quiet poignancy of memory.
