Douglas Durkee works in his studio in Burlington, Kentucky. He uses materials like wood, stainless, laminate or aluminum, and reflective components. Each piece of his work contains electric lights placed at various intervals in a highly reflective chamber to create sculptured light tunnels, which he calls his “lucky stars”. “My work is my way of sharing my blessings and a ‘glimmer of infinity’ with you!” -Durkee
MADI is a great artistic adventure, and perhaps, the only existing movement which can justify half a century of existence. MADI is more than an avant-garde movement; it has an underlying wave with several and differing offspring. It is the slow-paced growth of a tectonic plate in the history of art. Indeed, since art and environment are perveived as the fusion of two cultural phenomena, the progression and expression of both of these blend in everyday life.
