Residing in Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut, David Colbert emerges as a distinguished artist with a unique trajectory that spans academic excellence and a passion for creating art that transcends traditional boundaries. Colbert earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Architectural Studies at Middlebury College in Vermont.
I feel drawn to mystery through Nature, Geometry, and the play of light on very simple forms.
Geometry, near broken stone walls, glacial erratics, in nooks of fields, in tidy woods, near wetlands, on bedrock, on small rocky knolls, in the flat areas, in the cracks, next to streams, within rocky hollows, on charcoal circles, by convex or concave mossy rock, as markers on the way, as a vision rising through decay, as a vision in the vastness of the woods, as a vision in the darkness, tucked into cracks, into little caves, covered in fresh snow, revealed though random-seaming snow-melt, poking up through ice, almost hidden in casual gardens, in pristine gardens, in intermittent pools, tumbling with tumbling rock, hidden within low bushes, forming a gate, forming an arch, within piles of dropped branches, buried in streams, at the invasive-adorned edges of fields, near pristine white walls. Changes revealed by ever-changing light.
I have had one museum show, a number of solo exhibitions and been included in numerous gallery exhibitions near NW Connecticut. My work may also be seen in a handful of permanent public installations in Connecticut, Florida and Ohio.
