About David Dauer

This group of paintings at Sotheby’s begins with free-flowing drawings with some topic in mind at a subconscious level, which evolves into a dialogue of the human experience. Lately religious and political events have become quite evident. Fish usually inhabit my canvases. I’ve come to realize that they, in many cases, are my personal eyes on the events.
dd_first_thursday_artist
As a youth I would go to the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) and sit for countless hours looking at Paul Gauguin’s “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?” This one painting had a profound affect on me. Others who helped shape me were Morris Louis, Stuart Davis, and Milton Avery.

With all the lessons of my past I am intent on being my own person and not influenced by the trends of today or even yesterday. My old professor/mentor, Edward Togneri (UMass Dartmouth) always told me to follow my heart and let the SELF come out in my work.

COLOR, COLOR, COLOR. STORY, STORY, STORY.

Truth in myself.

Hopefully these paintings show this and will be a stepping-stone for my future work.

Unlimited Sotheby’s International Realty is a proud supporter of the arts and our local artistic community. We feature rotating works of art every month, beginning with an event open to the public on that month’s first Thursday. If you would like to buy featured works or see your own work featured, please contact us at marketingteam@unimitedsir.com.

Hidden Gem: The Museum of Modern Renaissance

boston hidden gem

The Museum of Modern Renaissance has given many Tufts University students and Somerville residents pause at its eye-catching location near Powder House Square. Originally a Unitarian Church and then a masonic lodge, the building at 115 College Avenue was transformed in 2002 into a vibrant “Temple of Art”.

 

boston hidden gem

The creation of the museum was the dream of two Russian artists, Nicholas Shaplyko and Ekatrina Sorokina. They fashioned a playful space filled with their own artwork that brings the visitor into another dimension. Covering almost every surface of the Museum with fresco-like paintings called “Mystical Realism,” the artists transformed their home into a fantasy world full of mythological themes. From the front hall, which they call the “Parade of Planets,” to their workroom that also serves as an indoor garden in winter, to the teapot-themed bathroom, their artwork graces the entire building. All the art is a collaboration of the two married artists.

 

museum of modern renaissance

The outside of the building (pictured above) is as kaleidoscopic as the interior. The facade is reminiscent of an Incan ruin, with a large stone face above the doorway and a colorful bull on the door. Although the museum is not open to the public, there are tours available by appointment. The doors also open for various concerts and the annual Somerville Open Studios.
