We are excited to present this SACI Study Abroad Alumnus’ most recent opere a collection of 11 paintings and 3 drawings entitled Some Ten Odd Years Ago.

Josh Dorman’s work focuses on themes regarding the passing of time and how an object’s meaning is altered over time. Dorman’s work skirts the line between a technically realist practice in conflict with an almost surrealistic flavor. Artists that appear to be direct influences are Hieronymus Bosch for the obvious correlations with the scale and nuanced intricacies, as well as surrealistic Dali and De Chirico and those of the futurists era.

A body of work that is well grounded in past movements, paying tribute to them, while still aiming at creating something new and worthwhile all the same. It bears a compelling weight in terms of depth in terms of legibly micro-narratives, recalling similarities between his work and that of European or Chinese tapestry and Russian iconographic representation. A diverse range of emotional investment can be garnered between the micro and the macro interpretations of his pieces.

Josh Dorman (b. 1966) grew up in Baltimore in 1966 before studying at Skidmore College for his BA and then Queen’s College for his MFA. His recent exhibitions include John Martin Gallery, One New York Plaze, Ryan Lee Gallery and Koplin Del Rio Gallery. His artwork is in the collections of the Minneapolis Institute of Art Museum, The Boca Raton Museum of Art, The Butler Institute of American Art, The Springfield Museum and The Naples Museum.
