Cecilia Whittaker-Doe & Don Doe

Cecilia Whittaker-Doe and Don Doe live and work in Brooklyn and although their works physically appear to be very different, they relate in their complexity, fluidity and coloration. Whittaker-Doe’s natural forms are layered and colorful as well as extremely complex composed of trees, plants, flowers and waterfalls. Doe’s paintings are reminiscent of the 14th Street School in their use of exaggerated bodies, twisted forms, and sexual undertones. However, both artists’ forms metamorphose and peregrinate smoothly from one form into another. Their backgrounds are multilayered and fully developed and their colors saturated and of medium value. So that, despite the obvious differences in their paintings there are underlying similarities of an undeniable nature.
