When you're at the shops at Riverside in Hackensack this holiday season be sure to stop by the Riverside Gallery to see David's work, which is on display until January 22, 2010. On exhibit is his print series “Visions of New York,” that consists of both representational and impressionistic takes on familiar, urban scenes. The images are available as framed chromogenic prints, or as archival pigment prints on canvas. Says Derex, “With my mixed-media and photographic studies, my purpose is to generate a visceral energy. I seek to portray a universal essence, transcending geographic and temporal boundaries. My images are designed to powerfully connect the viewer in the moment with the past and the future.” David's award winning photographs and mixed media works have been exhibited throughout the country, and have been published in magazines and international coffee table fine art books. As David’s work retains an appreciation for and connection with classical traditions, his embracing of new technologies allows him to add an expressionist sensibility to his images. Having worked primarily with people and figures as his subjects in the past, the urban landscape provides fresh ideas to be developed.
Here are some samples of his work. Great, right??
