The fascination and mystique of the masked figure can be heroic, mysterious, ominous or ridiculous. AF wanted to unmask and get to the reveal at the ninth solo exhibition of the artist, Dotty Attie, for the opening reception of her show The Lone Ranger last November 21st. The multi-panel works in the signature black, white, grey and flesh toned accents paid homage to the identity and symbolism of the masked man. The photographic feel of her work is indeed a rich rogue gallery of characters and dare we say provocative in some instances. (You know what we mean with the picture of the artist and what’s behind her.) But being an agent provocateur aside, Dotty is one talented lady and she doesn’t need a mask on because there is no reason to hide. As a mater of fact, her work reveals a whole lot more to what meets the eye.
