Michael Dotson’s work is informed by contemporary virtual spaces and digital tools like vector graphics and Photoshop as much as his subject matter explores the idea of fantasy or virtual realities. Using Disney cartoon characters as archetypal subject matter, saturated color gradients, and linear perspective, Dotson’s graphic paintings seem digitally rendered but in fact are painted and manipulated by hand. Using solid areas of color, patterning, and distortion of figure and ground as a spatial devices, Dotson creates simulated environments within the flat canvas surface. In this print, the artist isolates Cinderella's glass slipper in the climactic moment where her true potential as princess is realized––shedding her life of unjust oppression to live happily ever after.
Framing option is black or white painted wood, 7/8" wide flat face and 7/8" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
