David Appleman

"Colors still intrigue me and I love various combinations. It is important to control the values, intensities, and complements of every color in a painting. 


A painting begins with a small line drawing which is then enlarged by hand and eye onto a canvas. Proportions and shapes may change during this enlargement process. It is important to be aware of how these shapes and their contours and rhythms influence each other before starting to paint. The same is true with my sculptures.


This influence of shapes and rhythms is the connection between the two- and three-dimensions in my work. The paintings and the sculptures are not a separate thought process."
