BUILDINGS & BODIES
by Ryan Dodgson
This compact volume collects the precise line drawings of artist and illustrator Ryan Dodgson who conflates architecture with the figure by positioning houses, fire stations, barns and Gothic cathedrals upon a series of bodies dressed in sundresses, scarves and jackets, blouses, and uniforms. This artist’s book is the definitive presentation of a series of portraits that Dodgson has been amassing since 2008. All the buildings in this collection can be found in and around Toronto, their bodies belong to friends of the artist.
