Douglas Freeman’s paintings combine his southern heritage with contemporary interpretations and processes. A native of Asheville, North Carolina, Douglas’ memory and sense of place play a role in his concept of the landscape. Douglas uses these influences along with his love for 17th century furniture, wall coverings and paintings to create hauntingly beautiful landscapes.
His paintings are crafted in layers using a series of paints, plaster and glazes. Parts of the paintings are then worked away through a variety of methods that reveal textures and scraped layers of color that
reflect a passage of time as well as a spontaneity of process.
Douglas‘ works have been shown in galleries throughout the south. He is represented by furniture companies in high-end “to the trade” markets.
Douglas received a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art with a concentration in Furniture Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Before his career in painting, Douglas designed furniture for David Edward and Niermann Weeks.
