David Imse

For the past few decades, while enjoying a career in health care, David Imse painted and sketched for pleasure. Not formally taught, his art was intermittent and always for personal use. David looked forward to the day when he could spend more time on it. In September of 2012, with the support of family and colleagues, David transitioned from family physician to full time artist. The topics of his artistic work are inspired by personal and professional experiences. He enjoys presenting the many facets of human form, while suggesting physical qualities that convey behavioral or emotional concepts. In David’s larger work, he explores the theme of humanity’s relationship with itself, by focusing on individual choices or circumstances.

“I have always enjoyed the creative process, but the creation of art has an analytical side as well. I start with the notion of an idea; often inspired by a personal experience or observation. I then attempt to pose the idea as a visual question. This rudimentary mental composition becomes the framework. I sketch out ideas, using photographs, drawings or models to create a physical collage of the piece. My style is representational portraiture, usually in oil or mixed media. I follow but do not adhere to the classic dogma of composition and color theory, and include more modern concepts of symbolism and body language. I try to present an unfinished narrative, a glimpse of a moment with potential for change. The next step in the narrative is built upon the viewer's own experiences and expectations. In a sense each work is unfinished, inviting the viewer to speculate and finish the piece.”
