“The real purpose of painting is to give pleasure. My work is an expression of joy. Joy in color. Joy in gesture. Joy in the act of creating itself." - Artist David Skillicorn
American abstract painter David Skillicorn sees painting as pure celebration. Based in New York and Massachusetts, Skillicorn has dazzled clients with his luminous abstract artworks for more than 25 years.
He explores complex spatial and color relationships through the use of texture, organic line, and sensuous fields of color. 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’s paintings breathe elegance, calm, joy, and exquisite beauty.
Skillicorn has pursued his passion for abstract painting because for him it is the most challenging, the most mysterious, and ultimately, the most magical. His work has been featured in Art New England, Artscope Magazine, Preview Magazine, Woven Tale Press, Studio Visit Magazine, Inspiration Magazine and many other publications. He is represented in premiere galleries throughout the country and his paintings are part of innumerable public and private collections, including Johns Hopkins, Regent Hotels, Intel, Chase Bank, Temple University, and many others.
