Doug Tausik

Bodies Under Pressure

2011 Exhibit Dates
Jul 12 To Aug 21

Tausik's sculptures are organic in form or, as the artist asserts, matter-of-fact representations of the invisible forces that affect a body as it undergoes transition. Doug Tausik was born in New York City in 1954 to artist parents. His education started at the Rudolf Steiner School � an institution that believes in educating invisible forces of the mystical kind, the so-called astral plane. He went on to study at the Art Student's League in New York, where he received a more traditional training, grounded in the study of the human figure. Tausik effortlessly combines both of these influences in his current work.
