About Artwork

David Shrobe’s piece Trance builds on his interest of excavating history and capsizing tradition related to portraiture in order to create a multi-layered exchange between the foreground and background of his paintings. Moreover, Shrobe actively seeks to push back on notions of linearity aligned with temporality and identity. There is an intimacy and familiarity of the figures in these works that are  layered within an explosive palette of colors, which span the spectrum from electrifying to neutral tones that evoke a tactility.
