Figurative Portfolios

"If two-dimentional art is an illusion," David once argued in a post-graduate thesis on the function of line and contour in modern art, "then the function of the 'frame' to let the viewer know where the illusion ends and reality begins."

But not all illusion, David would suggest, is confined to the surface within the frame.

Figurative art most often depicts a representation of the human form. In his figuratives, David often uses the human form to initiate a dialogue about the metaphorical relationships between the elements on the canvas and the world existing beyond the edges of that canvas.

David is still adding new suites to his Figurative Collective, so please revisit it from time to time.
