Featured Abstract Artist Doug Baird

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

Doug Baird is an Ithaca artist with a great sensibility for the drawn line as well as digital collage.  He often starts with a photograph he's taken of something that speaks to him, and then begins to add layers of drawings and digital manipulations.

His work ranges from images that look completely abstract to those that still delineate clearly the underlying photographic image.

Some of his work is strictly line drawing, or line drawings imposed on line drawings, like this one:

Doug says that his images "do not deny representational means, but give weight to all the perceptions in an attempt to reach a closer approximation to the experience of seeing."

Doug has a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and has exhibited original drawings and prints of his images in a variety of venues in Ithaca, NY.  You can see more of his work at DougBairdArt.com.
