For his second solo show at this small Williamsburg gallery, Dodge has created several paintings, works on paper and a sculptural installation. The sculpture, Study for Intelligent Design, features cast silicone body parts, “discarded android appendages, including a face, hands and ear, that incorporate synthetic colorless hair and technological fragments for sub-dermal viscera. The innards revealed by the torn away silicone flesh are comprised of a range of mechanical and electronic parts that span technologies of the past 50 years including typewriter parts, both old and current computer components, wires and fiber optic filament.” Two of the paintings are based on the Playstation game Katamari Damacy.
