Artist Statement


David Sisk is a visual and mixed media artist who has been actively creating and exhibiting in Chicago since 2000. His works are abstract, conceptual and representational works. His main styles are abstract ink/watercolor drawings and paintings. These works are often simple dense patterns of intricate lines, fluid shapes and harmonious colors, all of which are intended to create an atmosphere of contemplation. The subject of these works is often alluded to in the titles. Other works have a more narrative and symbolic structure, pointing directly to psychological states and interpersonal or environmental events. The approach toward all these creations is a meditative and self-reflective relationship between the artist, the medium and the thoughts and feelings that arise in a stream of consciousness during the creative process.
