Dorothy Hood, Future Spaces Part I, n.d. oil on canvas
90 x 68 in.


From Houston, McClain Gallery participates in the 2019 Dallas Art Fair with a curated selection of artists: Anne Deleporte, Dorothy Hood, Bo Joseph, Julia Kunin, and Luise Nevelson. The centerpiece of McClain Gallery’s presentation is Dorothy Hood (1918-2000), whose work combines color-field techniques with painterly abstraction. The pictorial space and visual fissures of her large-scale paintings recall a profound mindscape that echoes her early Surrealist influences from her time spent in Mexico. A beautiful trove of Hood’s collage works on paper, rich in material experimentation, reveal a more intimate look at the artist’s process and inspirations. This presentation marks the gallery’s debut showing of Hood material in partnership with the Art Museum of South Texas and its holdings and archives of the artist.
