Well, that's just crap. I think I liked the last Dodge you posted, but this? Come on... It's not even big.

I will refrain from comment.

Wait, are those jagged ripples in the large horizontal stroke original to the work, or are they a digital image artifact?

Nice energy. Original in the way it looks like everything is hanging down. Dynamic. Is that music I see falling off?

It's pretty amazing what goes as art these days, isn't it?

My pit bulls could eat a box of crayons and crap a better picture.

#10 (206) 501-1231 Sounds interesting. Call me re: your pit bull prodigy's paintings. Ofili, Manzoni, Friedman, and Delvoye...intriguing.

@11 -- Wim Delvoye....swoon. I love his work.

A lamer ripoff of michael Reafsnyder... geeze dont you Seattle people get out much.

C.V. vs. C.V. and Work vs. Work certainly presents an interesting pound-for-pound match up, but their projects are so radically different, "ripoff" seems a bit harsh if not myopic.

See the comparison for yourself at the artist's gallery websites.

Reafsnyder at the link provided above, and Dodge at ACME, Los Angeles.

Thanks for bringing Reafsnyder's work to our attention though #13.

of course they are different.. I actually thought Reafsnyder was not quite enough... They have one at the Portland Art Museum on the 4th floor.

PS Portland's Jesse Hayward (who is either a sculptor or painter but I cant figure out which?) is extending the language into installation:
