Inspired by the Louisiana landscape, Doug Cloninger uses color in order to express his feelings towards nature and order.  His work focuses on breaking away from form and embracing the serene environment through soft but vibrant colors.  The colors in Cloninger’s work weave around each other and exhibit order from afar while revealing true chaos in nature up close.

While studying Creative Writing in college, Cloninger was invited to participate in an open studio exhibition on campus and was moved by his experience. He quickly embraced his process and continued to explore his own goals within art practice.  Post graduating, he moved to an apartment with a close friend in New York City who taught him how to paint in a way that was fun and easy going. His newly found painterly method quickly became an obsession which he has continued to play with and develop.

Living in Louisiana, Cloninger has allowed the peaceful environment to help him explore the ways in which his painterly medium can mimic its environment and create an atmospheric aura within a given space.  His process is meditative and therapeutic and allows for him to further influence his works in the same manner. What Cloninger hopes to share with his viewers is the sense of wonder and awe that he feels on this earth with other humans.

Opening Thursday April 9, Castor Gallery is pleased to present Doug Cloninger’s first solo show Mother Nature on the Run.  Castor Gallery is located at 254 Broome Street, Lower East Side, New York City.  The opening reception is Thursday, April 9 6pm-9pm.  The exhibition runs from April 9 – May 2nd.  Castor Gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday, 11am to 6pm or by appointment.
