LUBBOCK – Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art presents Isotropy a large site-specific painting by graduate student, Jessie Dodington. 

Isotropy is a painting made to fill the walls of the Folio Gallery. In this sizable acrylic work on canvas, Jessie Dodington created an abstracted landscape to immerse the viewer. Dodington says, "Isotropy is about disorientation in a landscape that at first appears to have plenty of details by which one could navigate its terrain. In reality, it is easy to get lost in the details and each direction could end up looking the same."

Dodington is a 2019 MFA candidate at Texas Tech University School of Art. She received her BFA from Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, Canada in 2008. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo shows in Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, North Carolina, California, Canada and England.

Dodington taught as resource faculty in Fine Arts at Eastern New Mexico University, Portales, New Mexico. She was recently invited to participate in Texas A&M University-Corpus Cristi's Oso Bay Biennial on "Reexamining Representational Painting," presented March of 2018.
