Doug Russell

I am a visual artist who lives and works in Laramie, Wyoming. My work in drawing and painting explores two major creative directions: entangled and knotted natural forms, and monumental architectural compositions. Both bodies of work ultimately are meditations upon structure, repetition, and variation. I am currently an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Wyoming, where I coordinate the drawing program. This site is primarily devoted to photographs I have taken while traveling through Turkey. The photos act both as research for my work in drawing and painting, and also as a continuing record of my time in the country.
