Contemporary Paintings

Larger photos of work below available on request:

David Eddy was recently featured in a major solo exhibition, which opened February 22, 2020, and ran through October 15 during the pandemic business reopening period. This show was a celebration of the artist's 17 years with our gallery. During his dynamic career, Eddy has shown with many galleries across the country and has been represented by Albert Shahinian Fine Art since 2003. (Narrative follows photos below...)

Eddy is a self-taught painter whose talent, vision, and very hard work have paid off handsomely - both in the number and scope of gallery representation nationally and by an enduring and growing recognition of the quality and sophistication of his work. Most of Eddy's paintings center on figures, solo or in groups, and may include animals within the overall narrative of a piece. There is a child-like, naive quality to his work, but the modeling of facial expressions and the delightful complexity and subtlety of the whole speak to a creator with deep insight, expert craftsmanship and uncompromising integrity; and, sometimes, quite a sense of humor and whimsy.

Eddy's paintings explore varying levels of abstraction and styles of narrative. While the preparatory stages of his process - he works with many layers of pigments on panel and a ground which is periodically distressed by physical manipulation and mistreatment - are nearly identical for each piece, the final surface layers determine the unique narrative for a painting. A painting's subject (or narrative) begins to declare its-self as Eddy works on the preparatory stages. This sparks a larger image, story, experience, thought, or whatever, in the artist's mind and he then takes the painting to fruition/completion. His images are both self-revelatory and broadly human.

The following images are paintings shown in previous exhibitions at the gallery. Works not marked SOLD may still be available through the gallery. Please contact us with any questions.
