About

Adam Douglass b. 1979, Ōtepoti, Dunedin, Aotearoa, New Zealand. Lives and works in Broome, Western Australia

For twenty years, I have examined the intersections of painting and social practice through New Zealand, Australia and Tonga. Motivated by themes related to the social context of nothingness and social justice, my solo and collaborative practice has presented as site-specific immersive environments, gallery installations, films and documentaries.

Alongside my interdisciplinary arts practice, for sixteen years I have facilitated and led arts, wellbeing and gendered programs. I am currently working on a PhD with Deakin University, writing an illustrated novel and developing a participatory project with the Broome Community Recovery Centre in Western Australia.
