Dancing Between the Shadows of Power

Alex Dodge is an artist who creates paintings with a unique method of using laser cut stencils and pressing paint onto the canvas. Since the production process for Dodge's work bears some resemblance to that of woodcuts, it was an interesting experiment to create his work in woodcuts. His work is characterized by a unique ambivalent atmosphere created by mixing contrasting characteristics such as cuteness and creepiness.

Alex Dodge’s work in painting, print, and sculpture has consistently explored the promise of technology as it interacts with and redefines the human body. His painted images are generated using a range of virtual systems and traditional tools, but ultimately rendered in thick layers of oil paint using laser-cut stencils. Other works involve stamped relief block printing, screenprinting with tactile braille ink, and traditional Ukiyo-e woodcut block printing. Working across mediums and often with imagery laden with textile patterns, his work implies that technology transcends cultural contexts.

Making Process & Adachi's Artisans

The production of ukiyo-e, which developed as a commercial printing method, focused on efficiency and profitability. And so, all processes are streamlined and sophisticated. We will introduce the basics of ukiyo-e techniques through the production process of Katsushika Hokusai's masterpiece "The Great Wave off Kanagawa."
