Jae Dougall's bright paintings are in many collections in Canada and the United States, as well as in Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines and the Maldives. Since 1994, solo exhibits at Vancouver's Harrison Galleries have demonstrated her creative growth as she has moved from early classical training to a high-keyed post-impressionism. Her exuberant vision of realism includes both traditional and contemporary styles in a blend of exotic elements. The current series again features voluptuous nudes, painted with intense colouration and fluid linear emphasis. Another favourite form of expression is the still life, where her exotic fruits and flowers reel on their slanting picture planes. CÈzanne is in the perspective; Matisse in the details. A few brief brushstrokes send a red goldfish spinning inside a glass bowl beneath a purple vase of sunflowers. Oriental ginger jars and patterned carpets, beaded lampshades, stretches of silk and red painted furniture ñ these are the inventory of her dense and personal spaces.
