Douglas Breault​​

March 8, 2021 - March 31, 2022

Breault’s photographs still life arrangements that retreat to memories of his late father; testing time through documenting ephemeral elements like camera obscura projections, printed archival images, shadows, dying flowers, and objects owned by his father.

Breault freely misapplies traditional artistic methods of painting, photography, and sculpture by misaligning materials and connecting collected fragments. Materiality is essential to develop his ideas, subordinating form to process. The series, ​Sleepwalking​, enlists obliterated images downloaded and printed from the internet, traditional techniques like camera obscuras or pinhole cameras, and incorporates banal objects to build connections between narrative and memory. The process entangles a digital excavation combined with the sculptural element of altered objects and images. Strategies of mimicry and abstraction bring into question truth and transformation. These accumulations coalesce objects, images, and narrative into physical space.

Douglas Breault works as an interdisciplinary artist, frequently overlapping elements from photography, painting, sculpture, and video. He received his MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in 2017, and he currently divides his time between Boston and Providence. His work has been included in exhibitions and screenings at various institutions including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Bristol Art Museum, the Stone Gallery at Boston University, and the Amos Eno Gallery in Brooklyn.. He currently teaches art at Bridgewater State University, Holyoke Community College, RISD Continuing Education, and is the Exhibitions Manager at ​Gallery 263​ in Cambridge, MA.
