This event has ended.

Amos Eno Gallery presents HUSK, a solo exhibition of large-scale mixed media portraits by Anthony Dortch.

“We all have our own unique hopes, fears, dreams, pains, talents, and experiences. Those near and close to us — our family and friends — know where we’ve been, accept what we’ve become and, still, gently allow us to grow. Such growing space provides the unique opportunity for the extraordinary.” - Anthony Dortch

HUSK refers to a person’s dry rough outer layer. When the shell is stripped away, the essence of character remains. Dortch internalizes this essence and interprets these feelings into two levels of emotion, those expressed and those that lie deep within.

Dortch draws focus towards the inner self by recalling the bold colors and faux machismo of comic book art and the active brushstrokes of futurism. Relying on his intuition and emotional reaction to a subject, Dortch creates a gestural likeness that is guided by emotion and freed from the limitations of traditional formalist portraiture.

Anthony Dortch spent much of his young life in the heartland of the United States: Ohio. He attended The Colorado Springs School. There, under the influence of one of his early mentors, Judy Campbell, Dortch gave to canvas a theme that can be traced from his earliest days of expression…NO ONE IS ORDINARY.
