Roads and fences and power lines are part of our lives, physically and metaphorically, and they need not destroy the God-formed beauty on which they lie. I enjoy shooting very early or very late in the day, when the colors are more saturated, and when the low sun reveals the contours of the land and tints the clouds and the prairie grasses in beautiful, fast-changing ways.

Statement My photographs vary greatly in method, style, and subjects. Often oversized, his paintings are colorful, concerned with space and dimension and carefully arranged, sometimes sharp-lined but relaxed.
Paint, sometimes lots of it, is applied in unusual ways, carved out or cleanly scraped away with a palette knife. Through process, technique becomes its own thematic element.

The concept "developed from a couple different directions, a couple different lines of enquiry," Dodge says. To create them, Dodge makes a mark on one side and then immediately tries to replicate that mark on the other side.
You have this tension between the two sides-literally-but there's also this tension between the expectation and what you're actually making. Now, though, he's finished with the diptychs and on to something new. When I ask him which one of his paintings he's most proud of, he says, "Always the most recent one. Glitches are interesting to Dodge, at least visually, because they're a disruption that exposes an underlying system.

The glitches are represented in his paintings as layers-"multiple paintings, sort of stacked on top of each other"-different elements made visible, some pieces removed.
