Douglas Breault (pronounced 'bro') is an interdisciplinary artist who overlaps elements of photography, painting, sculpture, and video to merge spaces both real and imagined. His work has been collected, published, and exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art (South Korea), Space Place Gallery (Russia), the Bristol Art Museum, the Rochester Museum of Fine Arts, Amos Eno Gallery, and VSOP Projects. Breault has been an artist in residence at MassMoca and AS220, and was awarded the Montague Travel Grant to study in London and Paris in 2017. Douglas is a professor of art at Babson College and Bridgewater State University, and he has been a guest critic at MassArt, Wellesley College, Kansas City Art Institute, and the Slade College of Art, among others. Douglas is the Exhibitions Director at Gallery 263 in Cambridge, MA. He received his MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University and a BA in Studio Art from Bridgewater State University, and he currently divides his time between Boston, MA and Providence, RI.
I freely misapply traditional artistic methods of photography, painting, and sculpture by purposely misaligning materials and connecting collected fragments to question the precarious nature of truth and transformation. Materiality is essential to developing my ideas, subordinating form to process. I collect images, materials, and objects that can be reassembled, and as a result, coalesce to reveal a new image. I am interested in the limitations of a photograph itself, considering how an image can be unfolded and expanded to describe a person or place paradoxically absent.
