David Kimball Anderson
David Kimball Anderson Large Oil Stick Pastel Abstract Flowers Drawing

1972

$1,500

About

Large bright vivid drawing done in oil crayon or oil pastel. Abstract floral drawing. David Kimball Anderson’s work is bold and graceful, respectful and spiritual. A practicing Buddhist and avid surfer as well as a sculptor, Anderson has given way to 4 decades of work that revere beauty in nature and beauty in industry within his signature aesthetic. For Anderson, steel girders, dry leaves, machine parts and distant train lights are equally as compelling as strawberry flowers, begonias, Asian antiquities and the night sky. Editing down to essential form while adding a touch of embellishment allows his work to embody both minimalist formal truth and decorative adornment. Anderson’s art practice is a beauty-driven way of knowing the world. In this sculpture David Kimball Anderson assembles an arrangement of Metal artifacts in a still life tableaux. In assembling these diverse elements the artist references and challenges the idea of "ready-made", where the unified pieces of the sculpture are transformed into a single art object. Artist's initials inscribed on the artwork "D A 1987". There is something of a Giorgio Morandi quality to the stillness of it.
