Bill Doggett, Painter-Photographer



Multi faceted,  Bill Doggett is an award honored American Constructivist painter-photographer active since 1978 
influenced by Russian Constructivist Art, Photography, Film and the cinematography of  the iconic 1950s-60s Italian film maker, Michelangelo Antonioni. 

Equally prominent as influences are Surrealist painters, Rene Magritte and Giorgio De Chirico and  German Expressionist film maker Robert Wiene and cinematographer, Willy Hameister[Das Kabinet des Caligari]

The expressive use of  line,  color,  visual space , disorientation in composition, cinematographic tableau, mise en scene & montage are themes consistent throughout my work which reference a uniquely blended mix of  film, photography and modern art.

Color, shapes. shadowthe use of light,  intentional composition that disorients in his work is used as Metaphor. 
 The Metaphor exists as a multi layered ...discovery  that is different in each unique viewing, as if an Impressionist or Expressionist painting in a large gallery space.
