The Brandon Artists Guild presents the new paintings of Dave Fifield.  This new collection of paintings titled Head In The Clouds” runs May 4 through June 26.  The public is invited to the opening reception Friday, May 4 from 5-7 PM.

Dave grew up in Vermont and graduated from UVM, where he studied audio art and philosophy. He became interested in abstract art almost as soon as he started taking courses.

Dave said, “I am fascinated by the infinite possibilities of abstract art. I almost feel like it’s more about discovery than creation. Not knowing how a particular painting is going to resolve is what is exciting about it. There is a freedom and wonder to the process that can be very satisfying. “Head in the clouds” felt like a good phrase to encapsulate the work. It describes the work in several ways. First of all, some of the paintings look cloudy, as if peering out of an airplane window, seeing through the mist to discover unknown landscapes. It also describes where I like to be mentally when I’m painting, in the clouds so to speak where imagination is least restricted. Also, I often find myself looking at cloud formations, which can be quite interesting, and they seem to just happen without obvious structure or planning, and for me that’s a metaphor for how I like to work.”

“The show is part of Vermont Arts 2018 – a year-long celebration highlighting arts events across the state, sponsored by the Vermont Arts Council.”

The Brandon Artists Guild is an artist-run gallery with approximately 40 exhibiting artists and additional supporting members. A 501(c)3 nonprofit cultural organization, the BAG supports the visual arts through exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations and educational programs.
