David Donald Sutherland born June 25th, 1989, originally from Detroit, MI, is a visual artist based in Los Angeles, California.
David Donald Sutherland is a visual artist who began his work in 2010 after leaving the United States Coast Guard. Almost immediately after moving to Los Angeles David began exhibiting in local group exhibitions. Over the years, his work has evolved into the refined style that he practices today.
David chooses to minimize attachment of meaning and words to the paintings because for him with each visitation or viewing, the work achieves a new uniquely cathartic experience. The physical fluidity represented in the work is the very same representation of its meaning. The colors and shapes within are often reductive figures and landscapes, reference points seeded to stimulate the development of reflective experiences. Created through and for means of expressing the core internal conflicts and exaltations which make us all human is where his works find their universal appeal for those open to examining themselves through what they reflect unto the physical world.
