Running Free by David Meadow
Dimensions: 16 x 20 inches
Artist Statement: I was fascinated with the play of light on the water and creating the feel of the figure moving through the water.
Artist Connection to the theme: This man is running toward the new world where race and economic class no longer matter and is leaving the old world filled with hate and prejudice behind him on the shore.
Bio: My fascination with how people interact with each other and their surroundings is a constant source of inspiration for me. Whether on a city street, conversing in a cafe or communing with nature, the human subject sparks infinite possibilities. While I appreciate the beauty of the landscape or the still life, the human condition is what inspires me. I want the viewer to be emotionally drawn into the painting. To question the motivation of the person on the canvas, weave their own story about the artwork and totally immerse themselves in the painting. It’s the emotional connection we all have to each other that resonates within my artwork. I have been painting and drawing since a young age. My art bridges the gap between realism and Impressionism. I have worked extensively in acrylics, pencil, conte crayon, and watercolor. I have exhibited in many juried shows including Philips’s Mill, Ellarslie at the Trenton City Museum, Artists of Yardley, 3rd Street Gallery in Philadelphia, Art Against Racism in Asbury park, Raymond James Gallery, and The Full Moon Gallery in Lambertville. My art is in many private collections as well. Recently featured artist in Out in Jersey magazine. Frame:
Framed and ready for hanging.
