I have been following Thomas Dodd and his work for many years now. His style is deeply romantic and his expression of the feminine embracing of all forms. He uses a painting technique that moves a photographic image closer to classical art. I am attracted to the mythological elements that subtly come into his work. People site his influences to include Gustav Klimt which I can see coming through with the use of golds, patterns and a strong focus on the feminine and sensuality in many of his pieces.
Here is a video where he has digitally animated some of his work.
