Loren Doucette

About Loren

Loren Doucette lives as an artist and teacher in Gloucester, Ma. Her work has shown in solo and group exhibitions on the North Shore since 2006. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting from Montserrat College of Art. In 2011, Loren participated in Montserrat’s study abroad program in Viterbo, Italy where her month-long studies demanded daily work on the landscape. It was in Italy where her love of landscape painting grew. Since 2013, she has extended her European exploration to Lourdes and Paris where she was enriched by the landscape, people, and art she encountered there. Her work has been featured in the Boston Globe and in the July 2014 Issue of Artscope Magazine.

Over the last five years, she has focused on different Cape Ann locations for extended periods giving her time to create series from the location. Her most recent studio work still reflects the colors and form found on the landscape yet is somewhat of a departure into brighter more fantastical colors perhaps speaking of exotic cultures and people overseas.  Where her previous landscapes have shown large expanses of land and sky without people, her most recent works combine both the figure and the landscape. Her current paintings express a grounded dreaminess and a search for “home”.  She remains wildly curious about the intersection of realism and abstraction and constantly seeks to blend the two. Her work and teaching are both deeply rooted by her studies in figure drawing and collage with artist Timothy Harney as well as her continued study of artists across history and those devoting their lives to art still today.
