About My Art
Refuge from technology...
Douglas Gilbert’s imagery is abstract, figurative, and expressionistic. It has been described as sensual, electric, and spiritual. It maintains a certain energy regardless of the subject. Inspired by nature, quantum physics, mythology, and the human condition, his images materialize by the convergence of thousands of straight lines of varying sizes. All the lines are visible to the viewer and thus his hand is always present.
Douglas views the lines as particles that by chance, or design, find each other to become something else.
This labor-intensive way in which he approaches drawing forces him to spend time with each piece, getting lost in the moment. His work reveals something familiar, but as the viewer looks closer, they get lost in the randomness of that particular area. In that moment he hopes to create an opportunity for contemplation and connection.
