About the Juror: Thomas Doyle

Thomas Doyle was born in Michigan, USA and now lives and works in New York. Doyle’s work combines his formal training as a painter and printmaker with a fascination with scale models that began at an early age. His sculptures, rendered in 1:100 to 1:43 scale, often depict human figures beset by quiet calamities, often of the natural kind. Doyle’s work has been shown at the Diesel Art Gallery, in Tokyo, Japan (2019), Hudson River Museum, in Yonkers, New York (2016) the Centro di Cultura Contemporanea at the Palazzo Strozzi, Florence (2012); Museum of Arts and Design, New York (2011); Bakersfield Museum of Art, Bakersfield, California (2011); and at museums and galleries across the US, Europe, and Asia. Images of his work have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Newsweek, and other publications. He is a recipient of the 2009 West Collection purchase prize and is a MacDowell Colony fellow.
