MATT DODGE Sculpted Photographs
“Modern images that capture contemporary man’s celebration of the eternal earth”, responds Matt Dodge, when asked to describe his work. “In order to thrive", he adds,"a huge slice of my soul demands active adventure, while another craves to create”. Combining the two, his work visually translates the intrinsic elation of outdoor engagement, when the synapses are firing and the soul rejoicing.
Creating the pieces is itself an adventure. He explains: “When I begin, I approach the canvas as I would terrain which I am raring to ride. As I propel through, I draw an innovative and inspired line, react with practiced skills and evolving maneuvers, execute with precision and style. The finished piece is my wake.”
