Douglas Scholes (b. 1962, Montréal) is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Montréal, Québec. Scholes’ work has a pragmatic basis and often uses poetic, ludic and seemingly futile processes and materials to address the fragile and changing nature of our intrinsic need to maintain the condition of things. The essential ideas reveal optimism, conviviality, empathy, familiarity that intersects with dormant, unsaid, unnoticed everyday things and experiences. His projects can take the form of sculpture, performance walks, videos and photography, using easily accessible materials, including beeswax, as a metaphor for nature of the condition of things.
