>I have an exhibition of new work opening Saturday May 7th at Ryan Renshaw Gallery. Here’s the spin –

This new body of work is an investigation into the changing nature of Australian patriotism and it’s representation. The last decade of Australian politics has seen a number of coming of age moments for our nation, none less visible than the seduction of nationalism. The central motif to all of this is the ever more ubiquitous southern cross and its variants. Flags, apparel, cars and even bodies are emblazoned with this sign of allegiance.

Returning to the economy of stencilled aerosol and drawing, Dodd has created a suite of works that may be at once celebratory and critical. These images are equally at home on the gallery wall as the grimy surfaces of suburbia.
