Doug Wright

Doug Wright was born in Ballarat in 1944. During 1963 - 1964 he studied at Ballarat School of Mines Art School, in 1966 at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, resulting in a Diploma of Art (Fine Art Painting). Since 1974 Doug has had over 30 solo exhibitions and is represented in numerous collections including National Gallery of Australia; National Gallery of Victoria, New Parliament House Collection, Canberra; Ballarat Fine Art Gallery; University of Ballarat; Swan Hill Regional Gallery of Contemporary Art to name a few. Doug says that his early training was in traditional landscape painting, predominantly in watercolour. Over the years and since working in oil, there has been a gradual refinement of those early approaches and a general move towards abstraction. In more recent years, the time spent working in both Scotland and Australia has made it clear how important is a sense of the space that surrounds and envelops you, and impacts noticeably on the way ideas are borne out in painting. Light, atmosphere, the energy of people, the this and that of memory transform the appearance of art; in other words it is the way ideas are magnified and clarified. How your actual being is signified in the painting. The creation of meaning in the work hangs by a delicate thread, bound up in paint, the metaphors of signs and symbols, all attempting to make a conduit complete between the artist, the painting and the spectator. Doug sometimes refer to this as the fragile triangle. For more on Doug's work, please visit https://www.doug-wright.com/
