David Ruhlman

David paints primarily in gouache on wood panel, often collaging newspaper or pages from old books to the surface of the board, and then covering with an acrylic wash. He experiments with form, color and texture, resulting in his own unique visual language that is not linear, but rather made up of fragmented narratives and untold histories. He views art as a process, an investigation of materiality, color and form. David tries to not be bound by any specific genre or style of painting; it is through continual experimentation that he finds enjoyment and gratification with his artistic practice.

Employing allegorical concepts of pandemonium, his body of work presents the world as a rearranged and transformed place, where one is continually led through a labyrinth of doppelgängers, double entendres, metamorphosis and natural phenomena. We are left with a world rearranged, but one that does not implicate perfection or organization in the traditional sense, but allows for an unruly explosion of continual wonder and possibility.
