Dorothy Hoover is an LA-based artist and set designer. Her work is preoccupied with corporeal presence, whether directly with actor’s bodies or by creating an allusion or void with objects.

She also has a tendency toward old-fashioned melodrama and a ruthless, sad/beautiful, cinematic nihilism.*

Dorothy writes, directs, and designs plays, which have been shown at Honor Fraser Gallery, Install: WEHO, Machine Project, and PAM.

Her artwork has been exhibited at general projects, half gallery, and WILLIAM leavitt’s studio, all in los angeles.

Dorothy’s design credits include Camino Real (Boston Court), Sneaky Nietzsche (LACMA), CABARET AND PETER & THE STARCATCHER (LA MISSION COLLEGE) Cattywampus (South Coast Repertory & REDCAT), and Lend Me A Tenor (Lee Strasberg), all with director Robert Cucuzza.
