DAVE WEINDORF

Metamorphosis
November 11 - December 2, 2017
Reception: Thursday November 16, 2017 6-8 PM

The modern and primitive come together in Dave Weindorf’s dynamic paintings. Influenced by hieroglyphics and cave art, as well as ancient Egyptian symbols and Viking runes, Weindorf brings those influences into the present through a clean sense of line and vibrant color palette. While that modern sensibility, in part, follows in the footsteps of Picasso, Miró and Kandinsky, it is the artist’s use of his materials and the intuitive approach he takes to painting that make his images distinctive.

Working in watercolor, acrylic, ink and stain on canvas and board, the artist employs a range of textures and tones in his images. Bold strokes of paint are placed over contrasting backgrounds with colors that range from delicate pastels to intense blues, reds and yellows. Weindorf says he likes to use vintage paints when possible, feeling that the vividness of those paints gives sharper definition to his images — heightening their three-dimensional sense of space. The resulting works combine a strong physical presence with a lightness and freedom that draw-in the viewer. Weindorf lives and works in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
