Piece description from the artist
This photograph highlights nature's beautiful patterns, discovered on a fallen log deep in the north woods, in this case. Landscape is the basis of Keith Dotson's art, as he explores abstractions and patterns in nature as well as grand, sweeping landscapes and cityscapes. He finds satisfaction in exploration and discovery, and enjoys the visceral process of venturing out to make images.
Keith Dotson is passionate about black and white photography. While some have called his work thought provoking, his goal is to make photographs that provoke emotions, seeking to capture the essence of a subject as much as it's appearance.
Dotson’s work has been shown in art galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Austin, Minneapolis, Wisconsin, Toronto, Nashville, and Knoxville.
His photographs have appeared in major national television commercials, and TV programs such as "Grey's Anatomy" and "Melissa and Joey".
Dotson has taught art and design on the adjunct faculty at Austin Community College in Austin, Texas and Texas State Technical College in Waco, Texas. He currently resides in the Nashville area, where he finds beauty in all four seasons.
