David Grieve created his first oil painting at the age of nine. As then, he paints still lives and landscapes. The beauty found in the influence of time and change is his constant underlying theme. Davids bold palette knife strokes, combined with the texture of the paint itself, draws the observer into the scene where they feel actually present. We instantly sense leaves moving subtly; the trees at center stage take on a life of their own, while the clouds move in and out of the frame, through a masterful use of deep shadows, remind the viewer of natures immense strength.
His inspiration comes from walking along pathways through protected natural areas. Recalling the sense of tranquil beauty David says, The path itself is like a metaphor for life. It is a journey from beginning to end, with ups and downs and twists along the way. The sun shines brightly through the open spaces in the canopy of trees, while in other areas, long, dark shadows are cast across the pathway.
He graduated with honours from Guelph University with a Bachelor of Arts in 1994. David then obtained a Bachelor of Education,at Queens University in1995. Since then, David has been painting full time in Brantford, Ontario where he lives with his wife and three sons.
