In nearly all of the styles and subjects that David paints, there are subtle elements of his father’s (Pro Hart) secret techniques. David has been left with an incredible responsibility to his heritage, and he feels that it’s up to him now to keep these styles alive. More than that, he sees his challenge is to take his father’s secret techniques to new heights and to push through the boundaries of experimentation and growth as he adapts and integrates them into his own style.
David’s Dragonfly and Ants series are quite different to the images painted by his father. David has introduced mixed mediums to his work, and uses acrylic bases as the background to create a shiny, slippery finish. He then builds the insects using layers of glazing, which are then rubbed away then re applied; this allows the image to emerge like light from the darkness. Shadowing is then added to create the illusion that the insect is floating on top of the canvas, giving the completed work a wonderful depth of field. Both the Dragonfly and Ant series, and the continual evolution of style and technique used to create them, insures these subjects will remain among the most identifiable and iconic series of David’s body of work.
