David Shull, Where there is great love there are always great miracles, January 2013 – July 2013
David Shull’s work is a response to the effects and modes of manipulation applied both overtly and inadvertently throughout our lives. Seeking sentimentalities, or short- cuts to deeper places in the viewer’s mind, David’s art employs many forms and medias to create alternate realities; forcing the notion that their “regular” reality may have farcical roots. His “alternate realities” are often made up of emotive modernist forms that subtly attempt to re-write a history at odds with its utopian goals.
