Originally from California, David was raised by New Yorkers in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and studied fine art, graphic design and computer science at at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. There, he began studying landscape and figure painting, working regularly in both watercolor and oil pastel. Since moving to New York in 1999, David has painted in oil and acrylic, incorporating 3d printing, mathematics and scientific principles into his work. He has exhibited around the country and his work is in private and corporate collections. He works professionally as a 3d and environmental designer. My current work is an ongoing exploration of the borders between traditional art practices and elements of design, technology, science and mathematics. I enjoy the visual languages inherent in each of these interests; art history as an aggregate of thousands of years of representation, letterforms as brushstrokes of language, layering as a palimpsest of life lived, simple algorithms that give rise to complex forms in nature. I find that the convergence of these influences yields novel hybrids; combining abstraction and figuration, 2d and 3d space, chaos and repose, signal and noise.
