This event has ended.

Breath & Death’ is a personal reflection and self-examination: the artist’s emotional diary in response to the almost simultaneous birth of his daughter and death of his mother (one month to the day apart). Zimmerman paints the people in his life with a psychological intensity that is reminiscent of Edward Munch and his ‘portraits of the soul.’ Douglas Zimmerman’s paintings have a simplified appearance and palette, noticeable outlines and premeditated composition employed to emphasize emotions, connections, and contrast, evocative of the German impressionists, but with Zimmerman’s clearly defined mark and style — he paints his own story.

Douglas Zimmerman is a psychoanalyst and a painter, has directed films, written screenplays, and produced television commercials. Zimmerman studied film and art (painting) at NYU and The Art Students League with Haig Manoogian and Will Barnett. Zimmerman lived and was mentored in Madrid by the seascape painter Jim Ward.
