Acrylic Paintings on Canvas, 2016-2022
I had read about the population decline of honeybees and started this series with bees as a subject. From there I moved on to birds and other animals mostly from the habitat of western NY.
Living on a historic property in Webster, I’ve been able to see most of the subjects firsthand.
The pieces are illustrative and graphical in style, using simple strong lines and saturated color. The style is inspired by folk art, the 2-dimensional perspective of the European medieval era, US national parks posters and the naturalist genre of Audubon.
Previous series have focused on expressionism and abstract formalist styles of painting. Other creative endeavors have been with music and electronic sound art as well as postal networking and publishing Foist Magazine, a historical atlas for the post-fluxus movements as mail art, visual poetry, copy art, stamp art and other relative trends from the 1980’s to 2000. The Scott Dohring International Mail Art Collection is housed at the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY.
