david is a friend of mine from vermont studio center. i loved visiting his studio because there was always so much going on- he worked on a lot of paintings at once. they're all different sizes and he often hung them clustered together on the wall (sort of like frames of a comic book). the imagery in his work is so original and unexpected... he's developed his own iconography.
here are a few photos that i took in his studio to give you an idea of the scale:
nina katchadourian was a visiting artist during my year at vermont studio center and this is one of my favorite pieces by her. using red thread, she carefully repaired broken spider webs- only to have the repair torn out and the web mended by a spider each night...
"Ross-Ho’s paintings similarly broach the uncanny. Translated from images of doilies or macramé wall hangings, her intricate webs are manufactured in grandiose scale, cut from painted black canvas dropcloths, or carved in sheet rock. Their recognition and domestic symbolism becomes estranged, placed out of context through size and materiality. Construing kitsch with the elegance of minimalism, Ross-Ho presents the sentimentality of tchotchke as emotive voids, displacing homey intimacy to the realm of objective contemplation."
