Description

On the Knotty Burl, a now shuttered night club, there was a vinyl record “moon” overlooking the starry night, mountains, and forest.

Dave maintains a youthful spirit, infusing “play” into all his artistic endeavors. His primary passion lies in painting, exemplified by two solo exhibits in 2022: one at the B1 Gallery in Vancouver and another at The Gallery at the Arts Centre in Whistler. Over the decades, Dave’s artistic style has undergone dynamic evolution, ranging from abstract expressionism to pop-art-inspired caricatures and graphic landscapes reminiscent of Whistler. His latest creations feature adorable genetically modified critters in vibrant landscapes. Rejecting artistic stagnation, Dave continuously challenges his creative vision, embracing curiosity and excitement akin to a child in a candy store.
