Landscape artist David Dunlop has been called a “modern-day old master,” and with good reason. His paintings transcend the ephemeral and often temperamental nature of the contemporary art world; David says of his work, “I think the idea is not to startle but to offer insight, which is far more elusive and difficult. Works of art that startle are transitory. The most effective painting doesn’t prejudice people toward certain results; it lets people do their own thinking and project their own imagination into the painting.”
David himself is something of a Renaissance man. Well-versed in philosophy, art history, and of course a master painter, David seems to capture all that is best about art: fantastic talent, poetry, and a sense of history and legacy.
