David Anthony Geary is an artist working in a variety of mediums for the last 20 years. His visual training took place in New Orleans, LA at Xavier University. He remained in this uniquely attractive city to absorb as much of its great culture and heritage as he could. Culture and life experiences fill his work along with the discovery of newness. Constantly pushing, searching and discovering the new while at the same time holding on to the old. It's not just an aspect of David's art but an aspect of his characterthat finds its way into the art. Communicating his perspective of the world around him through a visual language, he became fluent in many dialects of visual art. His work incorporates painting, printmaking, collage, assemblage, sculpture or photography.The nuance of the human experience, both the introspective and observed are an integral part of his process.
For three months artists Kenrick McFarlane, Arthur Wright, and David Anthony Geary participated in Rebuild’s One Canvas fellowship – a project that invited three artists to work both independently and collaboratively in a shared public studio space at the Stony Island Arts Bank.
Occasioned by Rebuild’s Noah Davis, 1975 Paintings exhibition, the fellows selected photographs from a communal South Side Family Album to serve as inspiration for three paintings, each of which was completed over the course of four weeks.
