Milton Artist, David Dauer in One-Person Show
Milton artist, David Dauer will be having a one-person show titled, Commentaries in Color: Politics • Religion • Events, at Unlimited Sotheby’s during the month of October. A reception celebrating his work will be held in conjunction with First Thursday Art Walk in Jamaica Plain on Thursday, October 5, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. There will be upwards of 30 pieces of his work comprised of paintings and drawings.
In re-inventing himself from design to his painting roots Dauer has discovered his lost passion. The mixing of colors and their juxtaposition on the canvas as they meet each other. The joy of story telling brings through a fanciful surreal style allowing him to speak from his heart.
The group of paintings at Sotheby’s begins with free-flowing drawings with a topic in mind at a subconscious level, evolving into a dialogue of the human experience. Lately religious and political events have become quite evident in his work. Fish usually inhabit the canvases. Dauer says, “The fish are my personal eyes on the events.”
As a youth he would go to the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) and sit for countless hours looking at Paul Gauguin‘s “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?” This one painting had a profound affect on him.
With all the lessons of his past he is intent on being his own person and not influenced by the trends of today or even yesterday. Edward Togneri, mentor/friend (UMass Dartmouth) always told him to follow his heart and let the SELF come out in your work.
A promise from the artist, “You will see and explosion of colors and stories that will challenge your mind at this show.”
