David Colbert- Sculptor
David Colbert lives Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut . After studying in Edinburgh University in Scotland, Colbert earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Architectural Studies at Middlebury College in Vermont. Colbert’s artwork has been displayed in numerous venues, from selected one-man exhibitions, to selected group shows. Colbert states, “I want this Art to be not only enjoyed by the Public, but also used by the Public. I want it to make a Place that draws people in, becoming a Place where people want to be, where their spirit can relax and expand. To be able to contribute towards bringing that into being would be an honor and a privilege.”

It is the physical materiality that makes a painting different from a flat screen image. During this challenging digital era, I am exploring the physical body of my medium. Each of these works is limited to one or two colors thickly applied. I do this with rough, sharp tools that give them a sculptural presence. Because of their low relief character, they interact with ambient light and visibly change relative to the movement of the passerby. The colors, in combination with the surface agitation, evoke a variety of moods. The monochromes evoke moods encountered deep in oneself during times of solitude. The duo chromes evoke moods encountered in an intimate partnership. The paintings are a tribute to the power and scope of the mark in combination with color and ambient light.
