David Taborn Portrait

David Taborns vielfältiges Werk bewegt sich vor allem zwischen Malerei und dem dreidimensionalen Bereich. Er versteht Objekte damit auch als Bildträger, die intermedial die Eigenschaften der Malerei aufgreifen. Sein künstlerischer Ansatz ist humorvoll und verspielt – dabei schafft er es gleichzeitig auf beeindruckende Weise, eine politische Dimension in seinen Arbeiten zu entfalten, die kritische Fragestellungen evozieren.
