In this painting, David used his signature negative painting style to capture the mechanical feeling of a railway bridge running through nature. He gessoed the canvas in black and then painted around the areas he intended to be black. The bridge was not painted - the space around it was painted. The soft grey light and absence of people play up the industrial quality of the scene.

David Thelen

Livonia, New York

Artist David Thelen was born in Western New York and has been living and working in the Finger Lakes region of the area. His strong family ties to the Catskill area give him a broader perspective on his home. It comes as no surprise that his artwork reflects the daily life and landscapes he sees at home and through his travels across the state. David’s signature approach to the artwork is to paint the canvas solid black, and he paints in the negative space around the darkened areas. He creates his main subject by painting the space around it rather than painting the subject itself. David lives in an old farmhouse that he is slowly renovating one room at a time, so most of his time is shared between painting, renovating, and maintaining.
