About

Joel Douek is an award-winning artist and sculptor originally from London and currently based in Los Angeles. Joel works principally with raw metals and woods, using a variety of oxidation techniques to harness striking natural colors and textures. He explores themes of change and impermanence, often contrasted against the enduring permanence of gold in the form of gold leaf. Joel’s working career has been one of organic, experiential, and elemental creation throughout.

 

Artist Statement

Where one person might see imperfection, another sees beauty. Yet for nature, beauty is not in the eye of the beholder. It is already present. In my work I bring together wondrous natural woods and metals which bloom into color when weathered. Once these colors show themselves, either through time or a gentle nudge, I apply gold as a symbol of enduring permanence against the impermanence of change.
