Thomas Deans Fine Art Presents: David Kidd

davidkiddartThomas Deans Fine Art presents the works of David Kidd from Friday, November 7th through Saturday, December 13th. The Opening Reception will take place on Friday, November 7th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

David Kidd’s beautiful exhibit, aptly named “Light and Shadow,” showcases the meditative dialogue between the artist and his paintings with an emphasis on the elements of nature. The physical act of applying paint has had a strong influence on the direction of David’s paintings throughout the processes of layering, editing, and re-editing.

An Atlanta native, David Kidd attended Memphis College of Art in Memphis, Tennessee but credits the development of his talent to a combination of trial and error alongside self-exploration. He views the act of painting as a journey of discovery, which allows his paintings to develop free of restraint to create a visual road map as his art come to life.
