The paintings of Dody Muller are rich with suggestion. The subject matter of these works is always ambiguous. Muller is absorbed with a number of recurring themes, horses, birds, winged figures, etc. These subjects recur in her works in varying contexts. The central figure in these canvasses float across an undifferentiated background which is frequently rather arbitrary in its treatment of space. Careful examination of these backgrounds reveal elements common to other pieces. The recurring symbols appear cryptic but are rather expressions of a romantic, perhaps even innocent nature.
The handling of space in these pieces is somewhat reminiscent of collage. Most canvasses are divided into areas, each with its own persistent theme. These surfaces mesh, intersect, and intrude upon each other in charming and surprising combinations. Also, Muller likes to surprise us by integrating unrelated subjects into her canvass, a photograph, or perhaps a nude whose scale is entirely out of proportion with the rest of the painting.
Muller's paintings employ a generous palette of rich and pleasing colors, which she combines with facility. She also has a gift for juxtaposing areas which play against each other in extremely pleasing rhythms.
Muller's work is highly personal, and in no way derivative. These lumindus visions are clearly a response to a lively and vivid inner reality. They are a graphic, concrete representation of a beautiful world of fantasy. One of Muller's persistent obsessions seems to be flight, often seen in the flight of winged figures and birds.
The canvasses evoke the vividly beautiful, yet somewhat disconnected quality of a dream. There is a consistently disturbing undercurrent in these pieces. Take, for example, "the Cat," which is upon first glance a perfectly ordinary study in the brilliant colors of a cat. However, upon closer examination this cat is not so charming. Indeed, there is something bizarre about it.
Dody Muller's is a developing talent which is constantly being refined. She is an interesting and uniquely individual painter.
