Dave Gold (1975- )
Dave Gold was born in Brooklyn, New York. When he was still a child he was absorbed in drawing. He began painting in 2002, initially creating abstract biomorphic surreal landscapes. His style relates to that of Yves Tanguy and Desmond Morris.
Later he began to add more figuative elements in a Pop-Surrealism style.
He usually shows lines connecting objects within his compositions to indicate that they form a sort of community of relationships within the painting. Many of these lines run off the canvas and in a sense link to the world outside the painting. Dave Gold likes to think that the canvas is just a snapshot of a much larger world, outside the borders of the painting, which lies in the viewers mind.
He has had a number of exhibitions, mostly in the New York area.
