Discovery is Everything
by John Seed
Painter David Michael Slonim, who considers art-making a journey of discovery, hopes that visitors to his exhibition, Color Song, will make discoveries of their own. By offering a suite of works that create emotional spaces for calm contemplation, he offers the opportunity to connect with the varied moods of his abstractions. Slonim is a formalist who distills as much beauty as he can out of each composition and thinks of each work as “an attempt to love a tiny corner of the universe into existence.” His art is intended as a way of showing love for others and the world that they share: each work carries the potential to serve as a unifying force.
