It would seem to me that Dodi Wexler is a bit obsessive compulsive. The intricacy of her work must demand more attention than a needy puppy. Not necessarily calculated, but certainly elaborate, her process yields incredible collage that is to be appreciated both up close and from a distance. She combines all sorts of materials to create visually rich and almost narrative pieces of rather large scale. The Mostly Little Land of This and That
is the title of her upcoming show in NYC. If you can, you must see this stuff in person.
