Of the exhibition, Dowd writes, “This show is a further exploration of my interest in the landscape of Southern Florida… the surreal juxtaposition of the geometric modernist architecture often with vivid colors set against the lush tropical vegetation… the highly artificial night lighting creating a sense of the romantic and yet unreal… dreamlike… vacillating between the worlds of attraction and detachment. This is what I see.” What Dowd sees is what audiences get: gorgeous paintings that highlight this juxtaposition between the natural and manmade, the geometric and organic.
