Piece description from the artist
This photograph captures an antiquated farm machine. This piece is the latest addition to Keith Dotson's "Historical Mechanical" series. Keith loves to memorialize these ingenious machines created and used by our forefathers. He is compelled by the textures, lines, angles and curves that are used in the composition.
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.
