Chuck Dodson Cast Composition Sculpture of a Seated Nude, American, circa 1970s

About

Chuck Dodson was an architect turned sculptor that was a resident artist at the Grove House in Coconut Grove, FL. His sculptures were predominantly of female nudes and erotica and he often used his wife Danielle, a retired ballerina as his muse. Dodson worked in the Miami area from the 1940s-1970s. He worked on numerous architectural designs that enhanced buildings throughout Miami in the mid-20th century. His sculptures and architectural plaques were featured at the Dupont Plaza Hotel in Downtown Miami. He also created the mosaic panels at the Orange Bowl Stadium. His sculptures are figural and his nudes are beautifully sculpted, with a spare elegance that is striking. Working in various mediums, he invented the composite material of which this sculpture is comprised, but never divulged the materials involved. It is quite hard and heavy, and he always painted the surface with a subtle colored wash of paint. During the 1970s an article was printed in Playboy magazine featuring his nude female and erotic sculptures, garnering him national attention and acclaim.
