The exhibit consisted of Davide’s large scale paintings, that were created specifically for the installation. Davide looks at the universe and the cosmos and reduces them to geometric morphemes, which he then turns into art. Using the arch figure as structural framework for his art, it represents humanity’s need to build shelters, which has advanced to something much more complex than it was years go. However, if you strip away the many layers, like time, everything is reduced to the same core shape.
While Davide’s art may seem perfect and smooth from afar, when you look closer, you’ll notice that there are in fact many “flaws” within the piece. Layers of plaster and paint are roughly applied to the wooden surface, which represents the effect of time and history on architecture.
Ultimately, his work is a study of form. Much like how we use language to speak, Davide’s paintings help us better understand the vast universe as a whole.
