Xico Greenwald reviews Lois Dodd: Recent Panel Paintings at Alexandre Gallery, New York, on view through April 4, 2015.
Greenwald writes that Dodd's paintings are "seemingly simple constructions that express a nuanced, poetic sensibility… “Porch Roof Snow Pile,” 2014, hung by the gallery entrance, sets the tone for the show. A view from a window, the cold winter light outside is palpable in this painting. Shadows on a mound of snow are described with jagged light blue strokes and a barren hill in the distance is purple. The triangular roof of a neighbor’s house lines up with the sash. The window grid is slightly askew in this De Stijl composition combining nature and abstraction."
