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.http://www.waterworksgallery.com
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.
