In the past he has explored 12 men carrying stones to build a memorial, the wind made visible as it touches the world and erosion of sandstone and wood. Recently Dave has concentrated on images that reflect the west coast of Canada, especially the Gulf Islands, where he and his family spend their summers. Two of his favorite subjects are arbutus trees and dragonflies.Dave’s goal as an artist is to create art that captivate viewers through both the concept of the work as well as it’s visual form. Historically works that have maintained their audience have connected both for their visual aesthetics as well their intent, somewhere between Expressionism and Formalism.
