Douglas Lail, The Fall of Reason, mixed media on canvass, 12" x 36"
American, b. 1967, playing from Asheville, NC, USA
Douglas Lail was born in Asheville, NC in 1967. Lail works predominantly in the medium of painting. Lail’s work combines non-traditional materials with a multilayer approach. This heuristic process involves numerous cycles of building up and stripping away. He is less concerned with preserving the surface, but rather discovering what lies beneath. His background is in graphic design. He shows in and around Asheville, NC where he lives and works. motiveindex.com
Thoughts on the Telephone process
I really enjoyed the adventure of translating the work of another artist. My process parallels the game itself ~ the numerous cycles of building up and stripping away to discovering what lies beneath. Through this process a patina builds and the story/essence of the work emerges slowly over time.
