Also opening: David Downs at Friday Night Wall





“I recently found it necessary to reduce the imagery in my paintings to ambiguous forms, or soft fields of color and light. I began painting complete abstraction because I felt objects and people, that are easy to identify and associate with, would too often usurp the meaning of a work. I’m not interested in glorifying a particular thing, or promoting a process, or demonstrate painterly skill; just expressing “basic human emotions,” as once described by Mark Rothko, through the relationships of color and placement. I see my recent works as an exploration of feelings rather than a statement about them. The paintings are meant to evoke the subconscious where meaning will ultimately be derived from the id of the viewer.” – David Downs
