Studio Visit: David Titterington
We visited the studio of artist David Titterington to see what he is up to. David's studio is filled with his latest series of work. The series is primarily made of square formatted oil paintings that "remix" the human body and landscape. Each unique painting contains multi-layers of thinly applied paint along with gestural aspects of line and color.
The studio has stacks of books and pictures including 19th Century Hudson River School landscapes, Rembrant, and gut bacteria. While we visit, David discusses the spiritual aspects in the landscapes of Frederic Church and Albert Pinkham Ryder.
We asked David about his messy palette and work area. He uses a variety of brands of paints including Gamblin and Old Holland. We saw various paint mediums, but he showed us a unique product called Maroger. David describes this product as similar to the product Rembrandt used to build a surface.

We look forward to David's next big show in February. We'll keep you posted.
