David Koch’s newest pop art paintings!

David combines or layers disparate elements such as; a monochrome field of color, images and graphics. Many of his newest works are on two panels, wood panel and canvas next to each other with one placed higher than the other. The images are simplified to line that give the viewer enough information to visualize the whole image. The choice of images in his work may not always make sense visually however it may touch someone at an emotional or conceptual level. And what may make perfect sense to one person viewing the piece may not for someone else.

The opening on First Friday was a delight. It was wonderful to see many friends and family come over to support David’s new body of work. He also completed his "self portrait" series with this show. He has done many paintings of a piece of candy, with a pill of some sort, and a word on top. The “Self Portrait “ series
is a direct response to many personal issues that have evolved over time.
Here are two pieces titled, “Yes” and “Glad”

David has been busy painting and has work showing at the South Broadway Cultural Center in Albuquerque. Check out the link for more information.
