David Onri Anderson

b. 1993, Nashville, TN
The work I make resists the spectacle and urges a greater importance for silence, ambiguity and rest.

David Onri Anderson’s paintings are impressions of his sensory and spiritual experience with images. He employs experimental, non-objective and intuitive approaches to process and materials, with influences from tantric art and cosmic philosophy. In his expanding, deconstructing and echoing of a variety of forms, he shows the inherent alchemical possibilities in colors, materials and repetition. His most recent subjects - patterns from fabric, objects and abstracted organic elements such as leaves, flowers and fruit - possess unfolding stories that allude to a universal spirit or mythology. Experienced calmly and gradually, these paintings exist as quiet conversations in infinite spaces.

David Onri Anderson received his BFA and the Anny Gowa Purchase Award from Watkins College of Art in Nashville in 2016. During his short professional career he has already exhibited nationally, including shows at ZieherSmith in New York, the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center and Zeitgeist Gallery, Nashville. In addition to his work as an artist, Anderson is the co-director and curator of Mild Climate, and runs Bijan Ferdowsi, an art space in Nashville.
