Please call with any questions you may have regarding his work.
My impetus for making art is to explore the mystery and magic of creative process as a tool and challenge to better understand who I am and my relationship to the world around me. My motivation is to translate and share my experiential relationship to the viewer through the language of light, form and texture. My goal is to create visual metaphors much like a poet uses the written language. Beyond aesthetic considerations such as color, value and composition what I strive to reveal through my artistic endeavors is the quintessential nature of the subject at hand.
ALL THE BEST.... DAVID HOPTMAN
There is no separation between ART and LIFE nor COMMERCIAL OR FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
