The Wrestlers

Mike Dowdall

November 26 - December 23, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, December 9 – 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Mike Dowdall has created Icons to a user generated culture. He is celebrating the secret rituals of birth and violence he finds in the content with which he besieges himself. Sometimes these Icons wrestle each other until everyone is dead.

As these images are laboriously carved from solid wooden blocks, traces are left of the whole from which the image is gouged. The ink is the meeting point between symbol and object.
