Jason Dodge’s minimalist show at Casey Kaplan Gallery is the perfect cheery antidote for the bleak weather we are enduring in New York. Large empty rooms draw your eyes to the simple rose and white colored fluorescent lights which alter the color of each space. Gallery staff constantly swap out the lights so that each room’s illumination frequently changes.
Other objects are placed around the gallery which if you’re not playing close attention, you may miss. A bag of organic groceries greet’s you upon entry and then boxes of tissues and sticks of deodorant dot the floor. American born, Berlin based Dodge’s show gives the visitor much to think about.
