is one of the young queer artists revitalising Intimism, an artistic movement which originates in mid to late 19th century Impressionism, depicting intimate yet banal interiors. A famous example of this shift in perspective from religious and historical painting, to personal intimate subjects are Degas' famous series inside Parisian cafés, homes and brothels including L'Absinthe
(1875). Today, Doron’s vibrant paintings expand to “create a sense of intimacy from a queer point of view”. He portrays people from his life in tender, vulnerable or mundane domestic scenes. Characterised by flowing brush strokes of magenta, cyan and marigold his paintings create an emotional and physical space where there are no harsh boundaries, only a sense of fluidity and connection. We talk to Doron about the impact of the pandemic on his style and the importance of allowing queerness to represent wider themes and stories.
