Artist's Declaration - David Louis

 

As a child I was drawn to the art of painting. Yet in practice, I became a trumpet player, composer and conductor. Music became a part of me. I composed in classical music style and conducted orchestras throughout the world. I played American jazz folk and blues and Chassidic Klezmer. Over time I gradually returned to my first love and I began to paint.Whenever I think about my musical compositions, I think what they would look like in painting.

 

To me, the colors of the spectrum, the notes of the musical scale and the Kabalistic Spheres are all one. The challenge is to take supernal ideas and embody them in sensible color, to see how elemental natural pigments are transformed into a mirror of metaphysical thoughts. When a brush loaded with paint touches canvas, the paint is pulled off the brush and leaves a spot of color. This contact is the transition point between the inner thought and the painting which will soon have its own existence. My whole life as a painter has been spent in improving the flow of the thought into the painting with the least possible presence of the brush paint and canvass.

 

Sometimes I paint from nature and sometimes from inner vision. Ultimately they are combined into one, or rather, together reveal the oneness which they hold in common. I think about the Kabalistic meanings of the colors and these crystalize in the natural forms I paint. I see natural forms interwoven with or composed of Hebrew letters. Sometimes these abstract Kabalistic letters appear to my mind as three dimensional objects and thus as subjects for still life.
