Charcoal, pastel, chalk, acrylic and mud on wood
In this work made as a circle, C. Douglas has retained his techniques of experimentation with paper, texturing it with mud and layering the canvas with acrylic and chalk. His mixed media technique allows for manipulation of tactile values, their two-dimensionality emphasising a continuity that is meditative and distinctive, decorative and expressive. The palette is oppressively dark and sombre, with Douglas searching the subconscious in the philosophic milieu of alienation, fragmentation and the fragility of existence. Once again, the artist explores suffering in his paintings.
