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 attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine. Recent exhibitions include Hemphill Fine Arts, Washington, DC, Mono Practice, Baltimore, Maryland, Curator's Office, Washington, DC, New Bedford Museum of Art, Tacoma Art Museum, Kemper Contemporary Art Museum and the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC. His work has been included in exhibitions at PS1 (MOMA) in New York City, The Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, Artists Space in New York City and the Frye Art Gallery in Seattle, Washington, Art Basel, Basel, Switzerland, Galerie Brusberg, Berlin and MC Magma, Milan, Italy. He has received grants from The National Endowment for the Arts (Arts Midwest), The Pollock Krasner Art Foundation, DC Commission for the Arts and Humanities and participated in residencies at The Banff Centre, Alberta, Canada, the Marie Sharpe Foundation's "Space" Program in Brooklyn, NY and the Golden Foundation.
