“Architectural references and structures are used as templates to explore memories and depict a sense of wonder.”
David Lewis Phelps, painter and photographer, has worked & studied in Mexico, New York City, Paris and Los Angeles. He currently resides in Los Angeles. With an undergraduate degree in fine arts from the University of Oregon, David went on to expand his artistic landscape at institutions including la Universidad de Guanajuato, Mexico, the School of Visual Arts, NYC and The International Center of Photography also in New York.
“As an artist, my mediums are painting and photography. Photography is an exploration of external perspective, form and of most importance, light. These are the key elements that I bring to painting. Although with painting, the images and references always arrive from an internal, emotional space.
My work is greatly informed by the arts & culture of Mexico. Initiated by my years as a student & renewed with years of return visits. The country has remained a source of deep inspiration.
Architectural structures are used as templates to explore memories and depict a sense of wonder.”
