Michael Dotson — A Whole New World

A Whole New World

“I think the object is a tool to get the image,” says Dotson, referring to his subjects, which are mainly drawn from Disney cartoons. “I was thinking about it as having a magic eye that automatically works for you.” The figurative elements within his paintings border on abstraction, his patterns being an example of this. A lot of these patterns seem textile based. Dotson says these patterns “…remind me of my wallpaper in my childhood house’s bathroom…or from a tabletop in a Chinese restaurant I like looking at… That’s what every painter is doing. They’re just enjoying how painting can be flat surface and a spacial device. That’s probably the biggest interest for me.”
