OF DRAWING & BOOKMAKING:
Douglas Pierre Baulos was born in Springfield, Illinois. In 1990, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. In 1993, he received a Master of Fine Arts from the University of New Orleans. His painting, videos, and poems have been exhibited/published both nationally and internationally. His current books are explorations (visual) and meditations (poetry) centering around his ideas of spirituality, love, death, shelter, and hope.
Books, because of their exterior/interior format, as well as their sequential ordering, have been of particular interest lately. The book as an object allows the viewer to be guided through a thought process as well as evoking time and journey/text and image in an intimate fashion.
