Acclaimed landscape painter Doug Freed has always produced large-scale works. His paintings are in the collections of numerous corporations, including Emerson, Sprint, Hewlett Packard, Pella, McGraw-Hill, Maytag, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Missouri and banks, hotels, and corporate offices throughout America.
According to Freed, private institutions and companies are attracted by the composition of his pieces.
The artist states, “Though I am a landscape painter, I’m truly an abstract artist. My artwork draws you in; it is accessible because the paintings are about time and light. … Meditative paintings work well in big, modern, contemporary concrete spaces, and I have the ability to do large, monumental paintings whereas most landscape painters are easel painters.”
“Corporations are the patrons of our time,” says Freed, who completed a massive 108" x 320" river landscape for the Emerson Electric Corporation headquarters in St. Louis and Epoch, a 96” x 120” painting that hangs in the new Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. by Legaya Figueras in Art Calendar
