Rae Douglass - self portrait
Captivated by the way the mind defines and transforms sensation into a meaningful recognition of the material world, I create artwork that explores and challenges preconceived notions of reality using materials and themes relevant to my audience. I design and build sculptures that evoke a continuous state of emergence by creating
structures that explore the tension between Chaos and Form, which is the inspiration for human inquiry and creative thought. Since art is meaningless without cultural context, I am interested in local traditions and crafts, and I travel to immerse myself in new cultures. I enjoy and am skilled at mastering traditional methods and materials so that I can transform and incorporate them into my own work. I have created a large body of permanent public installations that are thematically intertwined with the cultural fabric for which they were commissioned.
