Let me help you escape into a spiritual realm of conceptualism with interactive conceptual artworks
I am the artist David Willardson
I feel most inspired by the artists Claus Oldenburg and Richard Tuttle. They have been most influential in giving me the insight into the void where most of my inspiration comes from.
My works of art should fall into the category or abstract expressionism.
To complete my “Elegant Surprise” series, I would like to create 6 more works to be shown in this series. One of those works will be a 5’9” tall female sculpture with this material. She will ultimately complete this series.
I like to create small works that look like they are too heavy to hang on a wall but in fact they are very light.. I feel that they should look you in the face when you look at them. I also believe that they are humble and playful and that they invite you to reconsider your view when you confront them.
Different views will create a different experience in that you should not get the same experience from your previous view.I am a big believer in up cycling and all of my “Elegant Surprise” works will involve up cycling.
I feel that I am making something of importance with this new medium that I love to work with. Most of my experience in sculpture has been in clay. In high school I won an Art “Award of Excellence” in a State High School competition where my work of art was the only sculpture out of all of the different mediums to get an award. That sculpture is called facial expressions. That award also brought much attention from universities to my talent. Facial expressions has 365 different heads that form a vase and everyone who views it gets quite a different experience. I want those who view my works have a desire to interact with it in many ways such as touching it and even falling in love with it which many have told me that they have.
My artwork is created with an inward experience from an exterior experience that I have had. I feel that each one of my pieces has its own personal expression that comes from a part of my sublimation. IT has helped me develop as an individual finding a spiritual redirection which is important for everyone to experience. Creating artwork and viewing artwork is a spiritual experience for me transforming me into a different dimension when I need that escape.
My goal with Kickstarter is to raise enough money to get into a gallery and have a show, transportation costs, and finish my collection to be shown at the gallery.
