Douglas Breault (b.1990) works as an interdisciplinary artist, frequently overlapping elements from photography, painting, sculpture, and video.  He received an 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 Rochester Museum of Fine Arts, Amos Eno Gallery in New York, and VSOP Projects in New York. Douglas is the Exhibitions Director at Gallery 263 in Cambridge, MA and is represented by Nearby Gallery in Newton, MA.

“I freely misapply traditional artistic methods of photography, painting, and sculpture by purposely misaligning materials and connecting collected fragments. Materiality is essential to develop my ideas, subordinating form to process. I often enlist obliterated images downloaded and printed from the internet and incorporate 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. These accumulations coalesce objects, images, and narrative into physical space using mimicry and abstraction to question truth and transformation.”
