About artist

Dalibor David (1972) is both printed and focused. In is works melancholy complements a touching, fragile and curious examination of things in their visual abbreviations. Ambiguous, mutable forms related to changes in light come about. David takes ownerships of painters‘ tools – light and colour – in simple compositions created from banal objects. His intuition shines through the objects, and he makes of them into certain types of religious relics reflecting the impression of unending space in small select examples. Drawing disappears in coloured surfaces or in models.

 

Dalibor David’s entire body of painted creations can be split in two basic thematic lines. In the first the artist gives preference to the modelling ability of colours and explores plasticity, volume and content of subjects and topics explored. He is fascinated by how they incorporate themselves on the canvas or, on the contrary, how they jump off it. In the second line he transforms the object-focused world onto clean colourful surfaces and underscores their harmonic relationships. Themes are also chosen according to this approach. While in modelling an image itself becomes an icon-object jumping out from the canvas, actually their „copy“, in working with pure colour, the mutual ties between the framework and figures is fundamental.
