Artist’s Project: Chris Doyle


Doyle’s “Untitled House” series—hundreds of tiny, meticulously rendered watercolors of personal dwellings—began as a memory exercise for the artist as he recalled the various suburban neighborhoods of his youth. The artist has come to view them as “portraits of people I haven’t met.” They appear throughout the issue.
