STUDIO ,IN KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA
ARTIST IN WHISTLER BC
Gary W. Doll is an artist who currently lives and works in Kelowna, British Columbia.
Gary's paintings have an impressionist aesthetic and portray a range of facets of the
Canadian landscape, from sunlit prairie scenes to mountain ranges and cities.
I like the way that Gary has developed a distinct style but still manages to carve out
room for the occasional experiment or departure. I enjoy the style that Gary employs
in the majority of his works - a loose, pointed style where brush marks are quick and
deliberate. Elsewhere in his portfolio, though, occasionally a painting appears more
smoothed out and gestural or even painted with a palette knife.
Gary also dabbles in abstraction, producing works that are highly textured though often
less saturated than his figurative works. His abstractions are quite atmospheric, and
the recent ones especially all seem to have a rather calming mood about them.
Paint is scraped in layers across the surface to create a mottled look that combines
