Straddling the Great Divide

featuring new works by
David Masters
May 19, 2017 to July 7, 2017

“Straddling the Great Divide” is a new series by David Masters that combines writing, painting and sculpture into dimensional pieces which form dialogues about the rigidity of human framework verses the nature of the soul and its more eternal reality.


Masters starts these works by approaching a passage of Bible scripture and interpreting them through automatic drawings. He then creates geometrically rendered forms of paint and canvas over the scripture to form an all enveloping and architectonic container. The final products are three dimensional paintings encompassing Masters’ continual exploration of the physicality of materials and how he uses them to create narratives reflecting his beliefs and struggles.This relationship between the static and dynamic, rigid and organic, speaks directly to the greater truth of our temporal frames and eternal souls.

 HEDGE Gallery opens the two exhibitions featuring new work by represented artists David 

Masters and Liz Maugans on May 19 5:00-9:00pm.

David Masters is currently living and making art in Oregon, and Cleveland artist Liz Maugans is a new addition to HEDGE Gallery’s represented list of artists.
