Jae Dougall was born in the Philippines in 1956. She now resides in Victoria, British Columbia (Canada).
Jae Dougall is particularly interested in the representation of nudes and still lifes. His paintings, inspired by modern Dutch and post-impressionist painting, present a palette where rich harmonies of pure colors predominate. His style is unique and his lyrical compositions with their elevated perspectives are easily recognized. The artist begins his works with a dark background which becomes the basis of his light effects and his divisions of space. The fluid line, the extravagant and complex design, the rich chromatic harmonies and the use of patterns as well as an exotic atmosphere become the dominants of his work. Dougall believes in the power of objects to move the viewer.
“I love using and playing with multiple perspectives, making my subjects more and more varied and original. »
