Carol Douglas: Actually I Can

13 Jul-27 Oct 2024

Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Wakefield WF4 4LG


Douglas paints with acrylics, applying it with rollers rather than the traditional paint brush, building up layer after layer in a palette of warm greys, browns and mustards. Her alluring paintings depict household objects and people in domestic settings, inspired by her experiences of everyday life.

Enrolling onto an art foundation course at York College in her 60s, after having a very successful career as a sociologist and community worker, Douglas excelled and developed her personal style. Now in her 70s, she has exhibited in several galleries in the UK and her work is collected worldwide.

Actually I Can features 51 new paintings of various sizes, all of which will be for sale.
