David Slonim
artwork

b.1966

A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, David Michael Slonim has followed his dream of being an artist. As a painter, he seeks to push the envelope, developing surface nuances and mixing media. Cubism and Abstraction are two styles that have found new meaning in his work. 
Beginning his career with a sold-out show in 1988, this artist has been on a creative journey and continues to capture the attention of the art world.
At times provocative and at times playful, the images resonate. Using palette knife and brush, Slonim creates a unique sense of depth. Spatial arrangements playfully juxtapose in a semi Cubistic style. Like Braque and Miro, there is a slight figural element.
 Slonim’s creativity expands beyond his paintings. He is also an award winning Children's book author and illustrator whose books have been translated into five different languages.
Slonim has become one of the most intriguing voices in contemporary art today and Newbury Fine Arts is thrilled to showcase his art.

“Like Jazz, my work explore the tension between structure and spontaneity, form and freedom, harmony and discord, in pursuit of honest expression and joy.
Inspired by a wide variety of master including Cezanne, Picasso, Diebenkorn, Mitchell, Motherwell, and Rothko, I develop motifs and rhythms through improvisation. Colors, shapes, lines, and textures talk to each other, argue with each other, and-if I'm doing my job well-end up getting along. It often takes months with a canvas to get to that point.
I feel an affinity with abstract expressionists of the mid 20th century, sharing the belief that relationships of color, space, and texture can convey aspects of human experience in purely visual terms.”

- David Michael Slonim
