Dow Thompson creates hand carved wooden sculpture (also incorporating steel and resin) that are odes to the strength and capabilities of women. More specifically these pieces are a way to explore motherhood and womanhood, especially in the context of a male-dominated art world.. The pieces are not obvious or just about the surface of womanhood either. Throw out all the stereotypes too. The pieces are about strength and there isn't even a tiny whiff of apology. These pieces are about complexity and strength. If you are in NYC make sure to drop by.
The show takes place with Causey Contemporary curating and Central Booking hosting.
