Artist and writer

Arcy Douglass is an artist and writer based in Portland, OR. His work is based on the intense exploration of the generation of the maximum amount of complexity with the simplest forms. These forms often include standard shapes like arcs, squares or triangles that result in traditional drawings and paintings but also time based work like self generative animations. His research has led him to organize a symposium with Peter Ballantine on issues relating to the fabrication of the work of Donald Judd at the University of Oregon in April 2010. He is currently working on research with the National Gallery of Art about some of Mark Rothko's early watercolors that were painted in Portland and the Columbia River Gorge.
