September 19 - October 3

Opening reception Saturday September 19, 1-4 PM

Madrona Gallery is pleased to announce Karel Doruyter's second solo exhibition.

Doruyter’s paintings are complex works that utilize texture to enhance the sense of depth in the scene. From a distance these pieces have a sense of photorealism, however upon closer observation they can be quite painterly. Over the last decade this technique has garnered him recognition of various awards and collectors around the globe.

"Through my travels I have always been drawn to isolated places. In the past these were physical geographical parts of the world I have experienced. Now I find myself going inward, areas of spiritual and emotional isolation that I find disturbing and fascinating. I find recording the former on board or canvas much easier than the latter, but that only adds to the attraction."
