David Masters - Straddling the Great Divide

Masters starts these works by approaching a passage of Bible scripture and interpreting them through automatic drawings. He then creates geometrically rendered forms of paint and canvas over the scripture to form an all enveloping and architectonic container. The final products are three dimensional paintings encompassing Masters’ continual exploration of the physicality of materials and how he uses them to create narratives reflecting his beliefs and struggles.This relationship between the static and dynamic, rigid and organic, speaks directly to the greater truth of our temporal frames and eternal souls.
