“All we were was shells to protect us from the world, but mostly to protect the world from ourselves. We lost sensation and empathy when we got like this. We found this cove in the universe where we could be what we really are beneath it all. Full of sensation and full of emotion, full of angst.” — David Esquivel
David Esquivel (b. 1994) is an Aurora, Illinois-based based painter. David’s work traverses between the abstract and the recognizable with sloping mounds evoking mountains in a distant landscape or enigmatic glyphs. Contrasted against the neutral canvas, David’s distinctive forms float as if suspended in an alternate world. David’s paintings allow the viewer to meditate on the relationships between color and form while creating their own narratives and associations.
