"My hope is that these paintings will convey a sense of haven, and that they will be reminders of the peace and the beauty that will always surround us when we pause to watch and listen." - David Grossmann, 2018
David Grossmann is an American artist. In his first UK solo show, he displays a selection of distinctly recognisable landscapes – a quiet world in which deer and woodland bids calmly across our field of vision, seemingly undisturbed by the artist or the viewer.
During his formative years, he developed a profound love of nature and an appreciation of the extreme beauty of his surroundings. This appreciation was amplified by his experience of growing up between two very diverse cultures; Chilean and American, and two languages which led him to seek solace in nature and expression through visual language of art.
The evocative landscapes on show depict forests and mountains, lakes and pastureland. His style leans towards abstraction but the meditative process in which these pieces are created, the scenes are transformed into an expression of emotion.
