Meet Doug McIntosh


Always looking for something new to share. Recently met Doug McIntosh, based outside Portland, who photographs the maritime detritus (stuff) the docks and the boats. Wherever the image is.

In his studio, he manipulates the imagery somewhat getting more painterly in his aproach. After carefully printing the images, the surface is painted with a type of resin used on boats.. How appropriate.

The gallery received 8 images, ranging in size from 24 x 24 to 24 x 55.

AHH the luxury of large.

His works will be on display for this month and he’s featured on the gallery’s website.

The surface being glossy is different from other artist works at the gallery. I do believe the surface alludes to a different interaction between the  viewer and the work.
Stop by and let me know your thoughts.


About ruthoffen

Created by, Ruth Offen the founder/director of WaterWorks Gallery, a gallery opened in 1985 to showcase contemporary artists and jewellers that live and work in the Pacific Northwest. The gallery is on an San Juan Island in the Salish Sea.[ North Puget Sound] Pretty amazing place. While continuing to curate the gallery after 33 years, I'm decided to spend more time enjoying life by traveling, creating art with photography and dancing tango. Over many decades of amassing a personal art collection, now the process of downsizing is becoming a reality. How do we have more with less? Staying true to the motto, unencumbered by our possessions and not burdening our children with our stuff. This next process will take patience and courage.
