Michael Dotson Plays With Painted Patterns

‘Couch Painting’

Addicted to patterns of all types, when I saw Michael Dotson‘s paintings, I gagged.  A lot of which look like digital art, including ‘Couch Painting’ above, bearing a likeness to glitch-art, it’s hard to believe it was created with a paintbrush + acrylic paint.

‘Night Bright’ + ‘Dreamhouse #1’

‘Gesture Control’

A lot of them also brought to mind the sticky + sloppy artificial sweetness of the make-believe life so craved by the lead characters in Harmony Korine‘s most recent flick, ‘Spring Breakers’, full of neon zeal + fantasy.  Others however, reminded me of past + present Kenzo patterns like Natalia Stuyk‘s work for Kenzo’s Resort 2013 ‘Electric Jungle’ video as seen below.
