Douglas Witmer

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA


American, b. 1971   —   For over two decades Douglas Witmer has steadily pursued a personal inquiry into the materiality of the painted object, refining his processes within the framework of reductive abstract painting. His elemental compositional structures are activated by sensuous color and various improvised gestural and incidental actions. His ongoing interest is establishing a visual place that offers someone an open invitation for a personal experience of seeing and feeling. Witmer’s work has been exhibited internationally. Venues include The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Tiger Strikes Asteroid (Philadelphia), Hemphill Fine Arts (Washington DC), Sydney Non-Objective (Australia), ParisCONCRET (France), Gray Contemporary (Houston), Galerie Biesenbach (Germany), The Painting Center (NYC), MoMA PS1, and numerous others. His work is held in the collections of The Woodmere Art Museum, The Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska, The Columbus Museum, Columbus, Georgia and The Fellowship of The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, as well as numerous corporate and private collections internationally. Witmer earned his B.A. from Goshen College (Indiana) and an M.F.A. from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
