GRAHAM DOUGHERTY

Artist Statement:

"We give shape to our rooms; then rooms give shape to our lives. We pass through rooms unseeing; walls, floors, ceilings, doorways become unnoticed, accepted, ordinary. It is light which transforms the commonplace pragmatic shelter into a metaphor of remembered or desired sensations.

In these paintings the architectural (logical) elements become the abstracted structures of remembered (felt) moments. Both rational thought and remembered sensations are unified. The measured proportions give stability; the color, sensuality; while the patterns of abstracted light, reasoned in their geometric forms and sensual and ambiguous in their colors, give release and relief to an event remembered or longed for."
