Douglas Stewart is a US-based accomplished artist and undoubtedly one of the finest artistic talents in contemporary art today. Stewart takes us back to the early days of TV communication when often the image was distorted due to interference. Yet, Douglas's works are so much more than just the rendering of this interference. Firstly, and somewhat surprisingly, they are oil on canvas – not digitally enhanced. They are also large, original and attention grabbing. His art stops you. Spectacular works.
But Douglas' works are not simply re-creations of a TV still. From our memories of events and people, the works also evoke a feeling of disquiet or apprehension. The interference is symbolic of a flaw in the personality of the subject. Mao, Marilyn, Jackie Kennedy... All icons, yet (like us all) not perfect – flawed in some way.
These are spectacular works by an artist who we feel is on the verge of international acclaim. Douglas' works are museum quality images. He is truly an amazing artist.
