Doug Beube

Doug Beube is a mixed-media artist who works in collage, installation, sculpture and photography. He is an independent curator as well as the curator of a private collection for Allan Chasanoff in New York City entitled, The Book Under Pressure, which utilizes the book for purposes other than their utilitarian form. Doug teaches classes in mixed-media, artist’s books and photography and is invited to lecture at universities and art programs during the year. He teaches in the photography department at Parsons The New School and is a graduate advisor at the School for the Visual Arts in New York City. Doug exhibits both nationally and internationally and his bookworks and photographs are in numerous private and public collections.

Altered books
11 x 9 x 1 in.

            Viewers read the large text, SEEMEN, which has been excised from their pages.  The first book with the letter SEEMEN removed, is Merry Alpern’s photographic book entitled, From the Window Series and the second book, The Inner City Mother Goose by Eva Merriam with its pages sliced into half-inch strips appears through the text. Carefully cut through every page of the illustrations, photographs and texts, are hollow letters which interrupt the reading of the printed material.  Each letter is a three dimensional shadow which recedes through the depths of the cut-out pages and functions as a subtext to the narrative content of the books.
