With elegant simplicity and honesty of expression, Eliza Douglas creates imaginative paintings that stretch the possibilities of figural representation. Douglas’ genre-bending portraits and images of carefully articulated hands animated by swift and colorful abstract brushstrokes convey a fantasy grounded in the artist’s intimate, personal reality. Originally from New York City, the Frankfurt-based artist studied photography before moving to Germany to study painting. Eluding stylistic or subjective characterization, Douglas says, “I like the idea of making something that cannot easily be classified as abstract or figurative, gestural or procedural. I want my work to be open and porous.”
