David Skillicorn Artist Bio:
David Skillicorn’s highly textured, abstract expressionist works are a reflection of the natural world. The red, yellow, and turquoise hues feel like changing seasons, and the quick, strong brushstrokes a blur of motion, like a landscape rushing by. David originally honed his skills as a landscape painter, and then moved to abstraction, which he has primarily focused on since the late 1990’s. Many of his pieces obscure the line between landscape and abstraction, with hints of a horizon line enveloped in a frenzy of brushwork and color. His process is completely intuitive, beginning with applying several layers of color, and reworking the canvas, allowing it to evolve, sometimes for months. He will often take off as much paint as he applies, until he arrives at something that feels “interesting and true.” Although there is a dialogue between artist and painting, David says that in the end it is not about him. He hopes to create something that will “unlock a bit of spirit in the viewer.” The work is intended to bring this mood to its surrounding space and viewers, creating a unique atmosphere with its presence.
