Water Unspoken / Invention & Translation; The Art of Silence and Listening

August 13, 2018 | 7:30 pm

David Carlson

The Adirondacks are a land of water. Artist David Carlson shares his recent projects and the complexities of water as a subject matter for artists. An avid hiker and paddler, Carlson has incorporated water images of the Adirondack Park into video work that has been presented all over the world.
Carlson shares his most recent video projects, Water Unspoken, 2014 and Invention / Translation, 2017. ‘The Art of Silence and Listening’ is based on the tension and mind-set between two bodies of work, one needing silence as an element for the video, the other being the necessity for an audio component as a bridge between the work and the audience.
David Carlson has had 17 solos exhibitions and participated in numerous group shows from 1988 to the present. His paintings, digital video and digital photographs are included in national and international collections. Since 2000, David has shown his Digital Videos in venues from Senegal, Egypt, Washington, DC, South Africa, Belgium, Turkey, Illinois and Texas. He has participated in international exchanges with artists from Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Germany, Morocco, and West Africa. Carlson has taught design, drawing and painting for 21 years at Marymount University and other local art programs including the Corcoran and EEI Communications. He continues to collaborate with international artists and in 2007 he joined with German artist, Pit Brussel and Egyptian composer, Ashraf Fouad to create the installation ‘Firewave’.
