Altamira is proud to welcome landscape painter David Grossmann to the gallery. His contemplative work offers a uniquely modern approach, making him a perfect fit among Altamira's Western Contemporary artists.
A Colorado native who has lived in Chile and traveled the world, David Grossman calls his paintings "visual poems." Using a gentle, glowing palette, he 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.
In a review of Grossmann's work, Fine Art Connoisseur magazine noted, "One of the most difficult challenges for an artist is to create a unique and compelling piece in a way that appears natural and not overworked, and that is exactly what Grossman does. His paintings come across as easy and effortless - they effect the comfort and relief of a 'visual exhale' while also leading us into meditative contemplation and thought."
Grossmann's work has won numerous awards and been included in many exhibitions, including the Coors Western Art Exhibit and Sale, Oil Painters of America Western Regional Exhibition, American Impressionist Society National Juried Show, and Salon International. Southwest Art featured Grossmann as one of their "Artists to Watch." His work has also been included in Plein Air and American Art Collector.
