David Carlson's "Out of My Mind" was our very first exhibit when Fred Schnider Gallery of Art opened in May of 2018. Now David's back with his follow-up, "Flattening Time".
"My painting process is a meditation on consciousness and time. With no apparent references, I am free to experience time and thought authentically. Abstraction engages the visual language and poetic tension of gestural line, form, color, and layered surfaces along with my life experiences, conversations, dreams, and the internal question, “What if I do this?” All these parts come together as metaphors for anything and everything. This connection sets up a collision between opposing paradigms of structure and change. What we hold on to and what we let go."
- David Carlson

About Fred Schnider
Out of My Mind
David Carlson’s Fields and Transformation series is about process and the contemplative state that is developed from the artist and the viewer. The varying methods of scraping, brushing, and sanding are applied until the painting is completed.
-A Broader Sense of Place
By photographing, blending and stitching multiple exposures of a scene together into a seamless composition, an interesting passage of time and space is portrayed within the still image confine.
