ABOUT THE ARTIST
Douglas Jan Burgess II is an Indigenous artist (Haida, Dakota, Grand Ronde) and his aesthetic is inspired by the Haida art that surrounded him growing up in Hydaburg, Alaska. He pays homage to the makers that came before him yet tells his own story, addressing the issues and struggles of today’s social climate. One of his primary goals with his work is for it to resonate with the viewer, and for the experience to result in self-reflection.
Burgess has studied at Hilltop Artists, Pilchuck Glass School and the Corning Museum of Glass, and has shown his work in Museum of Glass, Tacoma Art Museum, and Pilchuck Glass School. Burgess has had residencies at Museum of Glass and a fellowship at Pilchuck Glass School.
