STUNNING CHARCOAL DRAWING BY DOUGLAS MCDOUGALL
Douglas Mcdougall born in Glasgow 1963 , Scotland / lives and works in london, uk. McDougalls process involves laborious, detailed drawing of a photorealistic quality, but is distinguished by the use of scalpel blades, rubbers, and sandpaper to scrape and tear the surface to create highlights and add texture to the paper. Douglas has spent years finely honing his technique, pushing the medium of charcoal on paper to an absolute extreme. From subtle biographical sentiment to the more dark confrontational aspects of human existence, his work evokes a theatre of emotional terrain for the viewer to navigate.
” This work is all about the flesh within the flesh, real life”.
