David Downs Artist Bio:
I have always had a fascination for the ability of color and form to influence the subconscious. Mark Rothko is one artist that worked very closely with the relationship between color and basic human emotions. I share Rothko's goal of eliciting an emotional response from the sensitive viewer with basic amorphous color-forms. My recent work takes on the form of minimal color fields or forms created either with paint, light, or photography. In some cases the addition of recognizable imagery is painted into, placed directly into the art via photographic image transfer, or paired next to the artwork; playing to associative subconscious. When I begin a painting or work of another medium, I first meditate on a memory and identify the colors and imagery I associate with that memory. I then construct the work using these ideas as a foundation.
