If you know anything at all about fine art, you know that abstract is one of the most difficult styles to do well.

An abstract begs for immediate judgement.  In the flash of a nano second, your brain registers whether you love it or hate it.  David nails it. Your brain loves it.

David paints individual layers of a high density, light yet durable material and arranges the 3-D assemblages into abstract sculptural paintings with a strong nod to abstract expressionism.

David studied at UNLV under Dave Hickey at the time when Dave and Libby Lumpkin reigned at UNLV.  Together, Dave and Libby undeniably influenced several rising stars in the art world.

Yes, that’s the title, I didn’t screw up. David obviously is playing with us, but would you want a work by a boring artist?
