The Roosterfish is featuring homoerotic art by local gay and gay-friendly artists. So, check out the works of our featured artist now showing.
The Roosterfish is one again proud to once again welcome multi-award winning painter and artist David Crocker. David's latest exhibit, "This Floating World: Oils on Velum" takes the chameleon like artist's work in a whole new direction by his brushing and dropping thinned oil paints on vellum and watching it organically flow and morph.
Opaque rich swatches of color coexist with thin veils of wash, enhancing the depth and transparency of the materials. Lines of graphite and charcoal help establish the subject and give form and location to the action-revealing the hand of the artist. The limited pallet of warm sepias with cool turquoise and grey bleed and blend creating a life of their own. Each is a strange reflection on the impermanence of this world.
The artist perhaps describes the medium best calling it, "...the primal direct flowing of nature with the fervor of genuine spirit. There is also something intensely liberating about this form of creating; the process itself becomes a search for transcendence. What has naturally happened on the surface requires a response and reaction."
David received his Bachelor of Fine Arts with honors from Michigan State University, studied painting in Florence, Italy, and was classically trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA.
The Roosterfish will be displaying several of David's homoerotic works through the end of August, so please come down and check them out. You can view several of his other pieces on his website at www.DavidCrockerArtist.com
