In “Mile Marker 246, Vestige”, a lone power pole is just silhouetted against what remains of a bright sky. Above it are thunderheads and darkness.

David is a firm believer in the idea “paint what you know”. By adhering to this principle, he finds that that subject matter is everywhere, right at hand and owing to familiarity allows for an organic, intimate understanding of it. With rare exception, his work is un-peopled, their imprint is everywhere and clear, but they, for the moment, are absent. His current focus is on a body of work in two series, “Uberscapes” and “The Anthropocene”.

Uberscapes are landscapes, only more so. In them he combines imagery, a street scene from one of his mobile photographs with trees from another and a sky-scape from a third. Lavender and tangerine skies where actually they were turquoise or gray. And often the use of gold paint.

The Anthropocene documents the relationship between humans and what was, and may one day become again, a natural environment. Humans imposing themselves on nature, and nature fighting back, sometimes feebly, sometimes quite successfully. The Anthropocene is also about the tendency of humans to anthropomorphize all they see in the world around them.
