Tim Doud is an observational figure painter primarily concerned with portraiture and nude studies. Exploiting the historical and current debates associated with his chosen genre, Doud slyly makes subtle references to both art historical and pop cultural imagery that directs, and in some cases complicates, the viewers' relationship to his subject matter.
Doud’s paintings are currently on view in a group exhibition at PS1/MoMA in New York and in a solo exhibition at the Watkins Gallery at American University in Washington, DC. His work will also be on view in the spring of 2003 in a solo exhibition at the Chicago Cultural Center. He has had recent solo exhibitions at Priska C. Juschka Fine Art in New York and at MC Magma Gallery in Milan. Recent group exhibitions include the Frey Art Museum in Seattle, WA; Ace Gallery, Artist’s Space, White Columns, David Beitzel Gallery, and Derek Eller Gallery in New York. He was the recipient of a Pollock Krasner grant in 2000 and a Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation grant in 1997. He is currently an Associate Professor at American University in Washington, DC.
