ART for the Imagination


David Skillicorn

David Skillicorn, based in New York and Massachusetts, has been creating luminous abstract paintings for over twenty years. He explores complex spatial and color relationships through the use of texture, organic line, and sensuous fields of color. In his Della Terra paintings, he often mixes in elements of the physical landscape directly into the paint — sand, stone dust, field grasses, bits of flora — infusing the work with the presence of the natural world. In mixed media works on canvas, Skillicorn creates sophisticated, intuitive paintings alive with surface texture, lush paint of vibrant colors in bold strokes over atmospheric passages.

Skillicorn has exhibited nationally in a numerous of solo and juried group exhibitions, including at the Rose Museum at Brandeis University, the Tang Art Museum, the Attleboro Art Museum, Danforth Art Museum and Fitchburg Art Museum in Massachusetts. His paintings are part of numerous public and private collections throughout the country, including Johns Hopkins, Regent Hotel, Intel, Chase Bank and many others.
