The floating, dotted Magic Hands in Alex Dodge’s new screenprint are poised as if enacting a trick or shuffling a deck of cards.  Nodding towards associations of gloved performers and the misdirecting art of magic, they weave a nostalgic tapestry, drawing from Dodge’s childhood memories populated by pop culture icons. The artwork subtly invites reflections on Adam Smith’s “Invisible Hand” theory, embedding a critical commentary on the unseen guiding forces of capitalism. Dodge choreographs a captivating interplay between personal memory, cultural iconography, and socio-economic discourse, crafting a compelling narrative that dances between visibility and invisibility, manipulation, and enchantment.

Made at Marginal Editions in 2023, each print is embossed and screenprinted with Day Glo powder pigment, signed and dated in pencil in the lower righthand corner.

The embossed and printed dots of the gloves glow in the dark after being exposed to light.
