Tim Doud’s paintings and drawings address two seemingly distinct bodies of work, one figurative and one abstract. These bodies of works serve as a backdrop to broader discussions around constructed identities, branding, and commodity culture. He graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an M.F.A in Painting and Drawing. He also attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine. Doud has exhibited his work at Curator's Office in Washington, DC, Galerie Brusberg, Berlin, Germany, Art Basel, Basel, Switzerland, MC Magma, Milan, Italy, Priska Juschka Fine Art, NYC, RAYGUN, Toowoomba, South Queensland, Australia, Mono Practice in Baltimore, MD and the New Bedford Museum of Art. His work has also been included in exhibitions at PS1 (MOMA), NYC, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, Artists Space, NYC, the Frye Art Gallery, Seattle, WA, the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA, Kemper Contemporary Art Museum, Kansas City, MO, and the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC. He has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (Arts Midwest), the Pollock Krasner Art Foundation, and the DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities and has participated in residencies at the Banff Centre, Alberta, Canada, the Sharpe/ Walentas Studio Program, NYC and the Golden Foundation, New Berlin, NY.
