David Shaw is been born to Rochester (New York) in 1965. Its sculptures seem prototypes escapes from a laboratory of NASA. Istinctively, the spectator is carried to reconstruct of the final function, but in effects such exercise turns out enough useless because the structures created from the artist American are not decostruzioni of familiar objects.
All the job of David Shaw is turned to the investigation on space, nature and materials. To its eyes the man stretches concettualizzare the own truth and, consequently, to place of the limits to its understanding of the things. Also equipped of great manual talent David Shaw it limits therefore its participation to the creation of primary shapes, shapes that they are introduced like picked abstract allegorie from our look in a precario equilibrium and that, according to Jennifer Coates, “are always two things for time, nevertheless they seem incomplete”.
The holographic rolled steel that partially covers the sculptures realized for the extension of Pietrasanta donates lightness and elegance to the used material, but of it it increases also the percentage of visual ambiguity approaching manufatto to a digital world somewhat distant virtual them/from the manual execution and from it I use of poor materials (wood, iron, steel) in the sculpture of the newyorkese artist.
The job of David Shaw suggests that ambiguity and uncertainty is members of the art and goes accepted from watching we in the comparison with the work, therefore as the artist is accustomed to inglobarle in its making dynamic and complex.
