DOUG DEPICE

Sensorial Realms
June 28 - July 19, 2013
Reception: Thursday July 11, 2013 6-8 PM

Doug DePice’s ghostly cityscapes are works on paper that nevertheless manage to be layered in three dimensions. DePice’s great inspiration is the way he combines media: charcoal slashes on top of fuzzy watercolor, thick acrylic laid over thin washes. The blend of textures creates a place in which chronological and emotional planes intersect: hard power lines loom out of a soft fog, and gentle sunlight comes through harsh, rundown ceiling beams. These renderings are specific enough to be portraits of both places and moments in time. DePice concentrates on derelict, unloved, and above all industrial spaces. With energizing strokes and an impressionistic focus, he makes images of deserted train tracks and busy street corners feel equally intimate. When he draws his frame in close, to capture a single stretch of concrete wall or a few feet of highway, his singular way of depicting texture becomes a hyper-observant abstraction.

Doug DePice was born in New Jersey and continues to live and work there today. He considers his work a study of industrialization, iconography, and our effect upon the Earth.
