David Skinner

David Skinnerís contemporary images of the California and Blue Ridge landscapes are derived from his deep respect for the legacy of the California Plein Air painters and their noble portrayals of light and terrain. He boldly defines his personal style within the genre by pushing the boundaries of color and composition, drawing upon the integrated traditions of the Bay Area Figurative and Abstract Expressionist movements. His work showcases his affinity for the light, space, and radiance of the landscape, his style signifying an integral understanding of the New York and San Francisco schools of Rothko and Diebenkorn.

Skinner's brushwork is loose yet representational with several layers of paint applied closely to and interacting with the canvas. Transient colors and edges suggest a leaning towards transcendentalism; renderings favor intuitive usage of color and perspective over straight objectivity.

Skinner interprets the relationship of natural light with the land through a lens of diverse shades and tones. Vast, soothing color fields punctuated with daring, bold elements of flora are quintessential characteristics of Skinner's unique vision.

Skinner's fine art training includes the University of California at Santa Barbara and the Master of Fine Arts program at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.
