Doug Kent Doug Kent Paintings

Artist Doug Kent has been living and working on the island of Martha’s Vineyard for more than thirty years. Originally informed by Surrealists, the German Expressionists and American Painters of the early 20th century, Doug has come to find inspiration for his continually evolving and evocative art from the intensely beautiful landscapes surrounding him. In recent years Doug has developed an innovative mixed media technique involving a combination of watercolor and acrylics worked together. He has also begun to paint on a variety of materials in addition to canvas, including wooden panels, ironing boards and wooden bowls. Doug has exhibited in galleries throughout Massachusetts, in New York, San Francisco and Tokyo. His work resides in collections as far afield as Singapore, Australia, Japan, Europe, and Latin America. With a career spanning three decades, his catalog of work is both voluminous and impressive.

Ott Gallery

My photographs of birds capture moments. Much of the time birds are on the move, doing what birds do to survive, to get where they need to be, to raise the next generation. The images I have chosen to print show birds in motion, but the viewer sees them as they are rarely seen in person, in detail that is usually lost in the blur of flight or the fading of distance.
