" Douglas produces works that constitute interruptions in the flow of time. 

He holds the spectator in a frozen moment surrounded by the forces of change.

His practice navigates the ebb and flow and flux which is the stuff of life. 

He challenges notions of permanence and stasis in a world where nothing can ever remain the same and everything is connected in the process of dynamic disintegration and reintegration "

_Pat Jamieson
