About the Artist

The modern and primitive come together in Dave Weindorf’s dynamic paintings. Influenced by hieroglyphics and cave art, as well as ancient Egyptian symbols and Viking runes, Weindorf brings those influences into the present through a clean sense of line and vibrant color palette. While that modern sensibility at least partly follows in the footsteps of Picasso, Miro and Kandinsky, it is the artist’s use of his materials and the intuitive approach he takes to painting that make his images distinctive.

Working in watercolor, acrylic, ink and stain on canvas and board, the artist employs a range of textures and tones in his images. Bold strokes of paint are placed over contrasting backgrounds with colors that range from delicate pastels to intense blues, reds and yellows. Weindorf says he likes to use vintage paints when possible, feeling that the vividness of those paints gives sharper definition to his images—heightening their three-dimensional sense of space. The resulting works combine a strong physical presence with a lightness and freedom that draw the viewer in. Weindorf lives and works in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

About the Exhibition

Metamorphosis

Featuring eighteen artists, Metamorphosis is an exhibition of contrast and change. The works on view present diverse and opposing perspectives on time, place, and the human condition, calling into question the arbitrary nature of boundaries. Through dynamic juxtapositions, the exhibition conjures feelings of harmony and mutual transformation despite the presence of difference.
