Artist James Dodds on Classic Yacht TV
Sponsored by Messum’s http://www.messums.com/
Boats from the around the British Isles are depicted in artist James Dodds’ work through striking lines and surfaces, the study of shape and his eye for craftsmanship in boat building. Classic Yacht TV produces a two-part documentary on Dodd’s oil on canvas paintings that are widely recognised in British contemporary art today.
Filmed inside his world — the riverside studios and home in Wivenhoe, with various visits to local boatyards, these films reveal some surprising parallels between boatbuilding and painting. Uncovered, is the close and shared relationship with boat builders, their craft and the industry, all stemming from his former life as a shipwright. Part 1 and 2 brings to light James’ working practice in producing enigmatic paintings that are celebrating the art of the boat builder through the vernacular working boats of the British Isles.
