Artists on Art – Roy Dowell on Dance Paddle

Rooted in his decades-long collage practice, Roy Dowell’s paintings and sculptures, extraordinary for their range of color and form, combine modernist cues with other visual languages, from Oceanic tribal art to Latin American art to commercial ephemera. Made of paint as well as non-fine art materials, Dowell’s highly personalized compositions are testaments to his extraordinary eye for the motifs, geometries, and patterns of the world’s vast visual culture. His work is in the collections of LACMA, the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Aspen Art Museum in Colorado, and The Drawing Center in New York, among others.
