Memory Traces As Form, Line And Stroke By David Dott

David Dott, the artist from Munich/Germany, is self-taught at drawing graphics and painting. The wild language is clearly influenced by the energetic lines of graffiti-style writing and classic and contemporary surrealism.

For some time now, his pictures have mainly been created with pens: pencil, fine liner, felt pen, and touch-up pen. Many of the drawings depict erotic scenes, nudes, or interpersonal observations. In analyzing bodies composed of simple geometric and organic shapes and lines, David Dott has been developing his own way of figurative abstraction for years. Minimalist and symbolic coloring, playing with black, white, and transparency, different degrees of realism and abstraction, and collages of different techniques and materials allude to basic functions of perception and thinking and reflect the complexity of consciousness. Precision and formalism are mixed with subtle emotional expressiveness.

After the artist had only drawn free-standing figures for a while, he tried increasingly in his more recent works to develop narrative scenes that expand, interlock and develop both spatially and temporally. In the more recent portraits, Dott tries to expand a pronounced technical-constructive approach with dynamic-expressive elements.

The artist finds his motifs in his own life and experience: pictures of moments that impress, accompany, and haunt him. The drawings of it then arise from the memory traces in the memory and form subjective narratives of real events. Sometimes he also uses photos as a basis and processes the motif in a symbolic context and forms that reproduce the experience with it.

For David Dott, art has a lot to do with truth, and almost with science: not objective truth, but subjective truth. Poured in subjective form. In search of your own truth and the presentation in your own language.
