featuring David Bachman
February 3 – March 12, 2023
Opening Reception: February 10, 2023
Time: 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Aquarius, the name of the artists’ show at Fenix Gallery, refers to the zodiac sign for healing and nurture. What a welcoming way to help open the 2023 curatorial calendar at Fenix Arts. The featured artist is David Bachman, a Fayetteville-familiar personality, whose work is in many collections, including Philip Mayeux and Joe Nichols, of Arkansas Art Scene.
As David Bachman recently described, ‘My art has evolved over the years until I have amassed a large collection of all kinds of art materials. I look at myself as an “mark maker” and have much to choose from. These can be both traditional and nontraditional materials such as shoe polish, coffee and lipstick that are combined with pencil, printing ink, grease crayon and so forth.’
For the retrospective and exhibit, Aquarius, David has chosen work from 1980 to the present. ‘I have always been creating in one form or another. It just seems like a natural thing to do, and it puts me in another place for a while. It feeds my soul. It makes me happy.’
