November 19 – Stephanie Dotson

Posted on November 13, 2014 by School of Art

Stephanie Dotson’s works explore the language of materials in search of transformation, flip flopping in the intersections where the 2-d mark, sculpture and textile art meet. Stephanie Dotson has a strong interest in the multiple, recent work applies the multiple to the classic braided rug, creating a new, almost opposite narrative for the familiar subject matter. The rug work is an extension of the roots of her resin cast paintings, which are composed of illustrations of brush strokes reminiscent of film cell animation. Born and raised in the Midwest, she has an affinity for Americana and the significance art and craft materials from her childhood.

Stephanie Dotson received her MFA degree at the University of Georgia (Athens, GA) with highest distinction and her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute where she honed her methodology in intermedia studies. Solo exhibitions of her work have appeared at the Three Walls Gallery, Chicago; Marcia Wood Gallery, Atlanta; Vox populi Gallery, Philadelphia and the Christina Ray Gallery, New York. She has been an artist-in-residence at the Bemis Center, the Vermont Studio Center and the Atlantic Center for the Arts. When not in the studio, Dotson is a proud mom and Associate Professor of Printmaking at Santa Barbara City College.
