Vicki Shuck and David Mensing
Fourth Friday Art Stroll - September 28, 2018
"I am interested in capturing moments of life. I am interested in the fact that most of what goes on throughout the day is filled with someone's cares and joys. My concern with the specific--those persons, this lighting, that expression. Each moment is unique and is comprised of its own textures, colors, and sounds. Isolating these moments through painting and drawing is my joy."
When he moved to the west as a young man, Mensing was captivated by its raw beauty. His ambition is to know and share that beauty through his work. As David captures and shares his experiences through art, he has found that striving to contain any moment brings wonderful assurance that the experience is too profound to ever really be contained.
