Thomas Dodd is a visual artist and photographer based out of the USA who has developed a style that he calls “painterly photo montage” – a method he employs in editing software in which he crafts elaborately textured pieces that have a very organic and decidedly non-digital look to them. His work often has mythic and quasi-religious themes that pay homage to Old Master art traditions while at the same time drawing from psychological archetypes that evoke a strong emotional response from the viewer.
Although his artwork resembles paintings, his pieces are entirely photographic in nature, fusing many images into a cohesive whole. His larger works are often presented in a mixed media form that adds a depth and texture that complements the photography beautifully.
Thomas has had numerous exhibitions of his works in many cities in the USA and around the world. He also has work on permanent exhibition in Paris at the Galerie L’oeil du Prince and at Art Gallery Constantin in Senlis France. This year (2014) he has shows in Poland, Germany, Romania, New York City, Mexico City, Orlando, San Antonio, Seattle, New Orleans as well as in his hometown of Atlanta. Dodd’s photographs have been featured in many magazines, on book and album covers and he is also the subject of an upcoming documentary film on the art nude and censorship in modern times.
