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

multiple hues.
