David Oleski. b.1961. Boston, Massachusetts; education: 1983, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Maryland Institute, College of Art, Baltimore, Maryland; currently living in West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA.
David has found a voice in his version of an intense scrutiny of the world around him. Following in the footsteps of the 19th century Impressionists, he began a deep exploration into increasingly fragmented views of simple still lifes. He captures a sense of rhythm and atmosphere with sophisticated colors, and thick and deliberate brushwork....read more.
David Oleski has continued his studies into color theory with a new series of abstract color field paintings. This collection of work represents an ongoing artistic evolution shaped and distilled by the observation of light and color. For a decade, the foundation studies of traditional still-life have opened the door for a departure from the rendition of an actual object; now exploring how the eye can create a composite understanding of nuances of depth and atmosphere through the substance of paint.
It all started with still life. In an endless pursuit of truth in observation, the time-honored tradition of the standard still life provided the foundation for understanding light and atmosphere and depth and volume. The broad and linear presentation of the academic arrangements creates an engaging juxtaposition of something classic being reinvented as something sharp and contemporary. A dialogue is created between subtle gestures of stems and curves and attitudes.
The paintings of David Oleski can been seen in person at some of the top outdoor fine art festivals throughout the year, all over the country.
