David Grossmann, "Through Earth and Sky" | Altamira Scottsdale
Altamira Fine Art Scottsdale is pleased to present the first solo exhibition for David Grossmann at our Scottsdale gallery, following several successful group shows. Over fifteen new paintings will be featured in the exhibition, sizes range from 6x8 to 30x50 inches. Subject matter includes his popular deer and aspen paintings, desert landscapes, and new subjects including horses and birds in flight.
"These paintings are expressions of the passing of time. They are quiet journeys through days and seasons, through earth and sky. Shadows on cliff walls, transitions of colors at dusk, phases of the moon, and the rush of sunrise all bring me back to what is fleeting and beautiful in life. I hope these paintings will be reminders of the wonder that each passing moment contains." -David Grossmann
Using a gentle, glowing palette, Grossmann paints abstracted visions of forests that are melodic in their focus on rhythm and symmetry. Sprawling swaths of landscape transform into flat, smooth planes, while scattered trees lend a profound sense of depth. These contrasting perspectives set the works slightly off-balance, sending the eye on an endless quest to consolidate them.
