About the Artist
Doug Frohman is a 2-D, 3-D artist and curator represented by galleries in New York and Chicago. Doug’s work has been featured at premiere US Art Fairs like ART BASEL Miami, CONTEXT New York, SOFA Chicago. In March 2018, he curated a major exhibition at Chicago’s distinguished Zhou Brothers Art Exhibitions called, “VITALITY RISING: a Five-Artist Dialogue”.
In 2007, Doug switched from painting w/ brushes to using a workman’s metal-edged cement trowel. In making this change, his ideation and imagery shifted from sweeping, gestural inter-play and layered accretions to a refined, more minimal emphasis relying on geometric shape and line. The resulting “atmospheric geometries” find bold, dynamic colors meeting at the edges, w/ the imagery and surface energy suggesting a larger spatial & temporal context — akin to a passage of music or ocean waves washing up on the shore – impacting the viewer with its presence and its power.
