Douglas Malone - Torso Study

Douglas Malone: "Thematically, my work is rooted in the existential unease which arises from the tension between the need to preserve the individual self, and the desire to overcome separateness. My paintings often feature a single figure in a self-consciously isolated environment, or multiple figures who exist in close physical proximity and yet are separated by a vast emotional distance. While often placed in introspective, self-absorbed, or guarded postures, the figures are nonetheless exposed and  vulnerable, laid bare to scrutiny. While addressing the predicament of irreconcilable isolation, the paintings also reflect an acknowledgment of the ultimate primacy of the individual, the inviolate and unique self."
