Artist

David D'Agostino
Albuquerque, New Mexico

David D’Agostino does not paint your quintessential landscape. His work is inspired by treks through New Mexico’s wilderness. He is fascinated by the desolate mountain peaks and desert lowlands, which are in a state of constant environmental flux, like a living, breathing beast. These extreme environments both enthrall and terrorize the artist. He captures the otherworldliness of the barren landscape with cool colors, expressionist brushstrokes, and lots of texture. Although the work is abstracted, the viewer is always looking up to the mountains, which dominate his canvases. The flattened style is reminiscent of Japanese woodblock prints, and the reverence for nature’s splendor and power is an inherent quality of traditional Asian art. The achievement of texture through varying brushwork is often used in abstract painting to create a surface that feels aged and eroded. In David’s work this technique captures the depth and roughness of the mountains in a contemporary way. The pronounced brushwork reminds you that you are looking at a painting, just as the majesty of nature reminds you that you are human.

Comments About This Piece

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
