A Dutch artist living in New York City since 1983, Sjoerd Doting concentrates on cityscapes, interiors, and portraits. He has maintained a studio in Long Island City since 1990.
"My life is centered around painting and drawing. Through daily observation of my surroundings, I try to document the passage of time, through the fleeting light from my windows, from the roofs, the bridges, the stations, and through the people I know, witnessing the passing of seasons and the ever-changing (sometimes disappearing) city. Working from life, I paint what I see."
