DAVID SIMPSON

Light is a key element in David Simpson’s timeless paintings. Iridescent interference pigments are mixed with acrylic paint to achieve fascinating shifts in light and color, such as orange to purple, metallic-green to blue, or from silver to light blue. The painting’s surface is ever changing depending on the light, the time of day, and the position of the viewer.In the geometric abstract paintings, the squares and rectangles vary in color, dimension and finish, yet are all perfectly balanced. The mind perceives all equally – the smaller ones register as further away, the larger ones closer.

 

David Simpson, born in 1928 in California, is part of the American Art History. Represented internationally, his paintings are in many important Museum and Private Collections, for example in the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; the Panza Collection in Italy, and many others.
