Lines that Speak Volumes
Dave Caudill has had the dual pleasures of studying under and being friends with Bob Lockhart for many years. Till now, his work has been focused on larger scale outdoor sculpture. This is the first show that presents his new colorful indoor works.
Caudill’s work may be found in public, corporate and private collections across the country. You can see two at the UofL School of Music. He is a recipient of the Pollack-Krassner Award and his studio is here in Louisville.
“I have fallen in love with color again after many years of working in bright stainless steel. This exhibition shows ultralight suspended pieces with hues that change as they race around graceful sweeps, and small tabletop bronzes featuring a diverse group of patinas. All show the rhythmic and harmonic appeal of visual music that has always fascinated me. “
Untold Portraits and Profoundly Untrue Statements
“The founding idea for this body of work is simple in its origin. Several years ago, I decided to ask some of my acquaintances if I could draw their portraits. Most, if not all, having seen my art, were reluctant, but eventually acquiesced to my request. So while each of the subjects sipped tea, I drew them.
During our time together, each of them expressed profound thoughts, questions or observations that I feel will illuminate them in an entirely new way. As I worked through each portrait, to present a uniquely Lockhartian viewpoint, I made sure to record these insights with great accuracy. Most, if not all, are revealing revelations that provide unique insights into the character of each subject.
Alas: also as an aside. whilst we were together, Socrates appeared to be quite stoned! Howdy Doody just lumbered around and Van Gogh was in his frenzied state of mind.
All of the above rhetoric is written more or less as an artist’s truth, or not!”
