Annette states “Whether it is a separation from your loved ones, nature’s unforeseen wrath, and the constant changes surrounding us,
our responses to these events affect us in the most unexpected ways. In experiencing these events—particularly in our attempts to influence and control them–one finds energy, emotion, passion, dreams, joy, anger, disappointment, and finally acceptance. Expressing these emotions on canvas is irresistible to me—it’s why I paint! As I paint, the emotions are revealed, transformed into shapes, colors, marks and lines. Even though the result is an intense personal journey, the viewer is encouraged to react to, interpret, and experience what is on the canvas in his or her own way”.
David’s statement “I love the purity of geometric forms, crisp and elegant line, a few bold colors and the visual record of brushstroke…I want my paintings to provide visual aerobics for the eyes, to entice the viewer to scan and measure and to discover patterns, appreciating the illusion of spatial depth while the paintings appear to be flat. The tug of war between two and three dimensionality creates an uneven balance. In the same manner, geometric abstraction has been coupled with a clearly engineered architectural realism. To seamlessly employ both pattern and the illusion of three dimensionality simultaneously remains the cornerstone of my vision”.
