Dave Martsolf Artist Statement

The conscious state of wonder is explored as an uplifting expansion of humankind's awareness of inner and outer nature and our ties to the universe. The position of the viewer at a human's foot level with a perspective view upwards is meant to reinforce this attitude.


Any work you see for sale here is also available in a giclee print up to 40" wide. The cost of these prints are all under $350 US, shipped rolled in a tube. Framed prices also available on request. Inquire to AbsoluteArts customer service for any specific work you have in mind. We can begin work on your needs within 24 hours of your first notification of interest. All giclees will be hand-signed by the artist. Thanks. Dave Martsolf

I have a hand-drawing personal style that I love, but also use photorealistic collage style for some surreal work. In addition, I continue to enjoy explorations in every direction.

My surreal visionary style is conceived in the bowels of endless empty space. Worlds come out of nowhere to define and fill empty space with form and reflected light. I use posed photographs with specific viewpoints that join seamlessly with other images to develop a hallucinogenic, some say gut-wrenching realistic space where mind-bending visions rule.

My personal drawing style is in its simplest essence the line; the drawn line and what it represented as the delineation of a form, a space, almost the way a topographical line feels out the form of a hill, or the way a blind man feels out the tender forms of his or her lover.

That line is also the signature of the vibration of life and life's emotions, twisted by the influence of others, fighting for a day in the sun, learning the way of calm, the mastery of the surf of life and the swell of love and anger. Brownian motion, cosmic ray decay, elemental particles, the paths of chaos, entropy, and rejuvenation, it has all come down to the line.

Somewhere the two basic styles of real-world conceptual surrealism and personal drawing style meet. That meeting has generated a third style where surrealistic vision is shaped by a personal drawing energy.

These are all the stylistic tools I use. Those tools can be effected by drawing instruments such as pencils, brushes, or computer. The visions themselves are guided by my life experience and quest to both understand as much as I can about life and our universe, and also by a sense of emotion. At this point in my life I have left all the dark lands behind, and though they may appear from time to time as a point of reference, my journey now climbs into the lands of nirvana, where, like the Voyager spacecraft, I will try to send back images of my experiences for as long as my batteries last.
