Doherty’s practise embraces multiple art disciplines, including drawing, painting and print. His work is led by reflecting on his environments; the people around him, their relationships and shared experience. Other common themes in his work are nature, community and ritual.
Doherty’s first solo show, ‘Gratitude Blooms’ was exhibited at SHOWstudio earlier this year and was the resulting body of work from a residency in Goa. Featuring paintings of flowers, petals and studies of the human figure, the show was centred around themes of ritual celebration and performative acts of gratitude.
