Artist Statement

Taha Al-Douri’s work in painting is based on exploring the boundaries of perception of space as an element of virtual depth.  The progress, since early childhood, was through establishing anatomical, and later, architectural and anatomical structures around which the general space of a painting revolves.  In paintings on both canvas and paper, his technique of choice has become a combination of charcoal, oil paint, crayons, and occasionally gold leaf.  Since 1995, Taha Al-Douri’s work has undergone a shift in the underlying subject matters addressed, moving toward theoretical reflections on questions of esthetic expression, and historic inquiry while experimenting with views of life as essentially complex and shocking through the improbable juxtaposition of its most mundane details.
