"David Arsenault’s paintings evoke the American longing for a quiet place, or the inclination to explore the open road, and when all is said and done, the innate need for community and human connection—the desire to break the sounds of silence.''
~Leslie Ava Shaw~
New York Art Historian
AT LEFT: A list of my "portfolio" of paintings, grouped by subject: Cape Ann Series, Cape Cod Series, Interiors & Figures, etc. Click on each category title to see the work within that category. Organizing my paintings in this way, in my opinion, helps you get a better idea of who I am as an artist, and tells you what I'm excited about seeing—and what I feel best captures it.
The places where land, sea, and sky merge have long called to me. It began on Cape Cod, yet the dramatic inclusion of rock formations intensifies the spectacle so much that I've decided to make it a long-term if not lifelong exploration. I'm just getting started here in Rockport on Cape Ann, my home.
Paintings of the Outer Cape: Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown. There seems to be drama everywhere you turn, and the light on Cape Cod is simply magical. Giclée prints are available of all of them. In addition, many others can be found on the Giclées page.
Paintings that comment on the intrigue and mystery inherent in contrasting interiors against exteriors—whether including figures or not—and also solitary objects. Giclée prints are available of all of these, and you'll discover others on the Giclées page.
Explorations of the relationship between the objects of the natural world and those created by human beings, focusing on the play of light on organic and geometric shapes, color variations, and times of day. Giclée prints of all of them are available, and you can find many others on the Giclées page.
Paintings featuring the heightened visual contrasts between light and dark, color and colorlessness, combined with images of 20th century neon lights. Giclée prints of all of them are available; others can be found on the Giclées page.
