Our current exhibition in the summer studio has been extended through October 17, 2020.

The prints in this exhibition are a continuation of his quintessential paintings of the Sagaponack landscape from the 1970s – 80s. Employing a variety of techniques including lithography, serigraphy, and pochoir, they reveal the reciprocal relationship between painting and printmaking in his work, wherein paintings begot prints whose compositions were employed in later paintings. In the “Garden” series from 1972, a collaboration with his close friend, Pulitzer Prize winning poet James Schuyler, earlier paintings became maquettes for lithographs paired with lines selected
from Schuyler’s diary. And much like the continuously evolving environments composing his
garden, characterized by variations and deviations upon particular themes, pochoir offered Dash the possibility of placing a singular composition into a state of flux, altering colors, shifting focal points and playing with positive and negative space.

A selection of the prints on view are available at https://www.madoo.org/shop-madoo-online/art/


Madoo, as you may know, is a member of the Hamptons Arts Network a consortium of cultural institutions on the East End for the promotion of the arts and develop shared resources. During these troubling times, we have come up with an idea to record our community living through the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are working with artist Philippe Cheng to take commissions for Pause At Home—family, individual, or essential worker portraits. A portfolio of all commissioned portraits will become part of the collections of East Hampton Historical Society,Eastville Community Historical Society, and Southampton History Museum as a means to gather and preserve information for future researchers. The option to pay for a portrait of a health worker, essential worker, civil servant, or a gift for another person or family, is available. Proceeds, after production expenses, go directly to support the 19 member organizations of the Hamptons Arts Network.
