“I am fascinated with the play of light and shadows,” says David. “I love how it creates a beauty in what many perceive as an ordinary and mundane scene. Painting cityscapes at night provides more energy and opportunity within a limited focus. The light directs you to what it wants you to see. What it wants you to experience. I want to help to convey how a dark and lonely alley becomes almost beautiful and inviting when looking at it through the right lens.”
David’s piece “When the Lights are Loud and Bright” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15.
