Contemporary painter David Michael Slonim has joined the roster of artists at Altamira Fine Art.
Slonim's work has been noted for its expressionistic look at the landscape. The artist aims to convey the essence of the land instead of a specific spot. His work is inspired by a wide variety of masters including Diebenkorn, Mitchell, Motherwell, de Kooning, and Cezanne.
With a background in plein air painting and illustrating, Slonim uses his many skills to create what he calls "visual rhythms" on the canvas. "Although my paintings are derived from nature, they are really about color, shape, texture and line for their own sake," he said.
Slonim's work has been selected for the Coors Western Art Exhibit, Great American Artists, C.M. Russell Auction, Western Rendezvous of Art, Western Miniatures Show at the C.M. Russell Museum, and the Rising Stars exhibit at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum. Solo exhibitions at regional museums include the Richmond Art Museum, Richmond, Indiana; Minnetrista Cultural Center, Muncie, Indiana; and Anderson Center for the Arts, Anderson, Indiana.
