Exciting and up-coming contemporary figurative artist, David Rees freely admits to having been influenced by the works of contemporary painters such as Andrew Salgado, Ryan Hewitt and Mark Demsteader, yet quickly points out that despite this he intrinsically avoided copying their styles so unjust comparisons could be drawn. Away from artists per se, Rees also cites human consciousness, science, geometry, beauty and ‘a thousand other things’ as alternate inspiration.
Whatever, whenever, whichever and however, the much-trumpeted Rees certainly knows how to pull the illustrative punches judging by first, second and third impressions of this, his brand new Spring 2015 release entitled ‘Girl I’. Limited to just 95, artist-signed editions, the giclee on boxed canvas pictorial affair is a graphic snapshot of a girl’s façade, captured at the fleeting moment when the wind sends her fringe crashing across it. This visually enticing and gratifying study is available to pre-order right now.
