In Phraseology, her eighth solo exhibition at Butters Gallery, Portland-based Dorothy Goode ties together themes related to travel, gesture, and syntax. In Summer 2016, piloting a campervan around the Australian outback, Goode found herself questioning the dubious linkage between mark-making and landscape. Would any trace of Australia’s stark, weathered geography and washed-out colors, she wondered, wind up infiltrating her lush, boldly-hued paintings? Upon returning to the U.S. she undertook a new body of work in which she challenged herself to radically simplify her visual iconography: to deploy ever-more-efficient brushstrokes and pours, conveying maximum impact through minimal means. The resulting paintings speak to the viewer in a wordless vocabulary, direct and mysterious, that recalls petroglyphs, runes, and calligraphy. Individually they read as parts of speech or punctuation; installed in multiples, they unfurl in elegant, emphatic sentences.
