Doug Baulos: Night After Night O’Moon
- Nov 27–Jan 13, 2019
- Carnegie Visual Arts Center
This exhibit by Birmingham artist, Doug Baulos, features an ecological installation inspired by Doug’s time spent at the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge, Japanese Inari Shrines and the Ikan Crane Center. Doug has collaborated with Alabama high school art students, Priceville Elementary kindergartners and Artist, Jerry Slayton for a portion of the exhibit to include whooping crane puppets, found nature elements and digital art. Using drawing/mending, hand paper making and natural dyes, Doug’s work reflects his personal exploration of grief and mortality, nesting, mending, memory, the physical body and spirituality. His work intentionally uses fibers and dyes from Alabama to parallel and draw attention and ask searching questions about Alabama’s biodiversity. His love and reverence for the natural landscape of our area is unmistakable in his installations that allow the viewer to immerse themselves in a unique cognitive experience.
