Bio / CV

Bio:

Eric Dodson is a Kansas City-based artist, curator, musician, and writer. His primary focus as a visual artist is assemblage, utilizing found objects in conjunction with construction materials and painting techniques. He considers his work to be related to the creation of an abstracted visual language manifested through inexplicit symbol-forms. Eric is the co-founder and director of Kiosk Gallery, an artist-run space in Kansas City, MO.
