Who is Doug?
The narrative focus of Doug Smock’s work has been envisioning rooms that are sparsely furnished, and which typically include a window view to the outside. His work is defined by the severe cropping of multiple images, with consistent themes of randomly placed inanimate objects, such as chairs and tables, as well as the use of highly saturated colors. The work may appear welcoming on the surface, but upon closer inspection, the viewer is met with foreboding, creating layers for the overall narrative.
