Personal Web Site

Doug Russell is a visual artist who lives and works in Laramie, Wyoming. His work in drawing and painting explores two major creative directions: entangled and knotted natural forms, and monumental architectural compositions. Both bodies of work ultimately are meditations upon structure, repetition, and variation. He currently holds the position of Associate Professor of Art at the University of Wyoming where he is coordinator of the drawing program.


He has recently had solo exhibitions at the Missoula Art Museum, the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts, Bradley University, Colorado State University, and the University of Northern Colorado.  His work has been juried into numerous shows including the “International Drawing Annual 3” and “International Drawing Annual 4” through Manifest Creative Research Gallery, "Evidence and Residues: An Investigation of Contemporary Drawing" at Indiana State University; and "Drawing No Conclusions" at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Michigan.


From 1999 to 2005 he lived in Kansas City teaching at Central Missouri State University, Maple Woods Community College, and the Kansas City Art Institute. Previous to 1999 he held a two-year teaching position at Uludağ University in Bursa, Turkey.  He returns to Turkey every other summer for a month of creative and cultural exploration with a small group of art students.  He holds an MFA in printmaking/drawing from the University of Iowa and a BFA in painting/drawing from Columbia College.
