About the Artist

David Kidd's paintings are process driven. The physical act of applying paint has a strong influence on the direction that the painting will ultimately take. While he may have a general concept of what he hopes to convey, his main goal is to not allow the preconceived idea to limit or restrain the creative process. The repetitive and random application and removal of paint creates elements and patterns that serve as a visual road map. He wants the act of painting to be a journey of discovery, a balance between the urge to control the surface of the painting and the desire to allow mystery and unpredictability to enter into the process. By not assigning meaning, he hopes to find meaning.
