More About This Title The Art of Dave Newman so Far ...

English

My collage work is heavily influenced by life's objects - signs, buildings, music, advertisements and nostalgia. Sometimes my art begins on the side of the road where I've found an interesting object. I search garage sales, junk yards and antique swap meets for items I can work into a painted collage construction. I use photos I've taken, acrylic paint, wood, metal, silkscreened images and found objects to weave a story with my art. I want people to draw their own conclusions when looking at my work. I want them to look and look again because there is always something else to see. When I'm not working on collages, I paint. My acrylic paintings on canvas and wood are spontaneous commentaries on Pop Culture, i.e., coffee cups, television, hearts, and the spaces we live in. They are created with a fun & whimsical feel because I tend to view life in that way.
