Dougie Padilla (b. 1948 MN, USA) is primarily a painter, who draws, sculpts, makes prints and ceramics, makes installations and ofrendas, and does ritual. In Heaven y Hell, his poems and text are integral to the visual work. The fables he is telling are laden with flying creatures, fish, and anamorphic beings. Snakes, dogs, and visionaries. He is telling us about vision.
