About

David Everett was born in Beaumont, Texas, and received both his B.F.A. and M.F.A. from The University of Texas in Austin. In 1978, Everett was awarded a Faculty Travel Grant from Southwestern University in Georgetown to pursue a series of drawings in Italy. In 1989, his work became the first commissioned sculpture to be published by Neiman Marcus on the cover of its Christmas catalog. Valley House showed his first multi-articulated, painted wood sculptures in 1986. Everett is best known for his wood sculptures, but he is also creates relief panels, bronze sculptures, and 2-dimensional drawings and woodcuts. His most significant influence stems directly from his earliest memories with his brother; they had a mutual affinity for the forests, swamps, bayous, marsh covered plains and bays that are the landscape of Southeast Texas. From this vantage point Everett began a life-long process of restating his observations into a visual art that explores what is, in his words, a paradoxical and allegorical interplay of both human and animal forms, celebrating the natural history of a personal world. His work often involves a totem-like pile of animals and figures that, contextually, become layered with meaning in their discussion of the fragile constructs within our universe. In addition to Everett's remarkable career as a visual artist, he is an accomplished musician; he played lead guitar in an East Texas Garage band called Six Deep whose 1967 single “Girl, It's Over” is now a collectors’ item. He approaches his sculptural forms accordingly, explaining that “My interest is not only in animals but the abstraction of the animal form...dealing with rhythms and intervals, colors and patterns, working a composition... not unlike music.” Edition AP 1/2 Paper size is 12 x 17 1/2 inches.
