This painting was my favorite work in Aylsworth’s exhibition last fall. I have admired David’s art over the years but was really moved by the new direction as seen in his recent body of work. The appearance of recognizable imagery, like this seascape and bird figure in the lower right, marks a pointed move away from his engagement with almost total non-objective painting. The expressive waves, pointed shapes, and colorful palette make this a truly remarkable evolution of Aylsworth’s style from his earlier days where white prevailed throughout most of his paintings. The dynamism is what truly drew me to this work in his most recent exhibition at Inman Gallery.
