David Marxer - Artist, Illustrator, & Programmer  

Self Portrait 1 - India Ink

I am currently seeking gallery representation.

Artist Statement:
As an artist, I first strive to capture the viewer's attention and interest and then, during closer inspection, induce curiosity and fascination. To help me achieve this I employ a realistic expression in several different dry media:
pencil, pen and ink, colored pencil, and pastel. Subject matter is suggested by photo references and pure imagination and is designed to invite the viewer to enter and wander. In some compositions, the viewer is asked to suspend any complete recognition of the subject in order to emphasize the design element of the artwork.

Personal: I was born in Des Moines, Iowa and spent my childhood in Iowa, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. In my adolescence, I moved to St. Louis and have spent most of my adult life in Missouri. I currently reside in Opelika, Alabama where I work as a Quality Engineer for an automotive manufacturing company.

Inquiries and Opinions:
For visitor's questions, feedback and opinions, and inquiries about purchasing original art work, or limited edition prints, or possible commission work, please email me at the address at left.
The poor quality of some of the earlier images was a result of my ignorance. The originals are now in private collections and no longer within my reach. However, with each new addition to my web portfolio I am hoping that my bitmapped images will also improve.
