"Great Calm" by David Bell

"Great Calm" by David Bell



Artist Statement: "I often paint with my fingers, mixing oil stick, earth, clay, and gesso in with the pigment. Sensory experience of the medium connects me to the work in a way that cannot be achieved with a brush. Because of this tactile connection, I view paintings as dynamic and evolving, not static. I often return to a painting weeks or months later and add something or take something away. Working with a piece over time creates dramatic differences in texture that give the painting new life as the light changes over the course of a day. For me, it is the dimension in the layers of paint that my eye finds most beautiful."
