Queen Print by Doug Wallace at Art du Jour Gallery Salon March 2017

March 2017 at Art du Jour Gallery

Doug Wallace’s Eclectic Art, Connie Fribance’s Oils, and “Discovering Southern Oregon” Contest Art on Display!

During March 2017 at Art du Jour Gallery, we continue our presentation of guest artist Doug Wallace’s eclectic realm of Byzantine queens and mythical maidens. “Looking back down the tunnel of time,” Doug says, “scrolling through the historical archives of what has interested me artistically for most of my life, I always find a bit of the fantastic in all that I do…and nothing is ever completely realistic.”

His art eludes conventional description. “The inspirational references for my paintings are many: Gothic, Pre-Raphaelite, Byzantine, religious icons, mythology, fairytales, book illustrators, and dreams. Surrealism has also played a part in my creative thinking.” He says, however, that if he were forced to categorize his paintings, he might call them “Eclectic Romanticism, or Theatrical Gothic.”
