David C. Terry

My work is about us. It is about the way we live, the way we relate to one another, the way we perceive the outsiders and insiders of our communities, it is about our place in time. As our primal predecessors documented and communicated their living experiences on the walls of caves, I am continuing that practice; taking the drawings off the wall and into a three-dimensional reality.

I am further interested in our ‘advances in technology,’ therefore I juxtapose contemporary man-made objects with timeless concepts and/or materials to bring the past and present together. With my work, I challenge us to look at the overlooked and to see and relate to our lives from a perspective other than our own.

The work I make I call ‘visual commentaries.’
