About The Artist
David studied art at the University of Maryland University College and the Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C. before returning to teach at U.M.U.C. Over the 30 years that make up David's creative career he has acquired a comprehensive repertoire of work that encompasses many genre and media.
... From his early beginnings with decorative finishes, small and large scale murals, traditional landscapes and experimental materials to the latest modern collages, sculptures and large scale installations he and his work continue to evolve and mature. His extensive portfolio includes completed commissions for several DC public charter schools, a global technology corporation, several commercial clients, public art works and numerous private residences from across the United States.
Working in series he continues to add new works and explore new themes and materials. In all of the works there's a common thread of thoughtful and thorough introspection. David’s development has included abstracted images that include depictions of American culture, industrialism, capitalism, entrepreneurialism and the greatest symbol of our heritage, the American flag. The Rust In Peace collection abstracts the aging relics of the automobile industry, capturing the essence of what used to be a thriving automobile industry and a car culture that helped to shape and define a bygone era. His latest series "Frequency Aesthetic" is loaded with energy as he attempts to present sound and frequency in 2 and 3 dimensions.
His work has been accepted in numerous exhibits including the following:
