Dorothy Hoover is an LA-based artist and set designer working in performance, theater, and object. 

Her work is preoccupied with corporeal presence, whether directly with actor’s bodies or by creating an allusion or void with objects. These presences/absences are talismans of ghosts. Steeped in an obsession with noir and the myths of Hollywood, the American West and California as Utopia, each work is a short story about loners, outsiders, and kooks with an intense awareness of human loneliness.
