I came across Doug (i.e., Douglas Pierre Baulos) on Flickr a fair while back.
I quite liked his work; some collages were very appealing as well as some of his drawings. There were two of his installations that I particularly liked. Anyway so here is my favorite - there is no title for it nor any details.
From looking through Doug’s c.v. there is some link going on with Cambodia, as he has shown there on and off, over the last 4 years.
He has also exhibited in China.
Other than that it’s all the US of A, which let us not forget is one big vast continent. Douglas teaches, lives and works in Birmingham, Alabama.
His artworks are in some pretty good public and private collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
It’s difficult in a way to pick on any thing that the work is “about” in particular – for me it seems to be about the flux of life. Love, loss, death, memory and possession to name but a few of its aspects.
