David True (American)
Born 1942, Marietta, OH
Lives and works in New York, NY
David True depicts humans and nature in his art in symbolic ways. He is primarily a painter, also working with acrylic and ink on paper with washes, stenciled images, and vibrant colors. His imagery generates verbally inexpressible abstract concepts and emotions that in turn demand a search for personal meaning and attention.
True gained recognition in the landmark exhibition New Image Painting at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1977, a forerunning introduction to the divergence from the minimal art trend into a new form of figuration.
David True artworks are represented in The Whitney Museum of American Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, NY, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN, and in other museums and corporate art collections across the United States.
