Douglas Schofield’s paintings and etchings map his inquiry into the definition of Nature in the Anthropocene epoch. Schofield creates en plein air sketches which inform larger abstract pieces that he completes in the studio. His bright gestural works playfully consider the place of gardening, farming, horticulture and indoor plants in the “natural world”. His paintings rarely refer to specific places, instead presenting an amalgamation of memories to convey a feeling or atmosphere of Nature.

Schofield’s Windowsill Garden etchings on wallpaper oscillate between the indoor and outdoor, simultaneously functioning as an interior garden and window to the outside. The vibrant triptych alludes to the legacy of William Morris wallpaper along with the rising popularity of indoor plants. Schofield is a current Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) student at UNSW Art & Design. Earlier this year his solo show, A trail of Petals and Dirt exhibited at Kudos Gallery. In 2017 he also participated in groups shows at AirSpace Projects, Articulate Project Space, Goodspace and 107 Projects.
