Quietly working away in his garrage studio, over the last 20 plus years is the dark and grundgy mind of Daivd Elliott
A product of the UT fine art system of the late sixtys in Austin, he chose an introverted studio style not prepelled or inspired by fame or fortune but endless ponders of closed room abstractions and dark beauty of the inner assosiations of the mind's control over the hand,.
This painting above i think has had the longest showing record in the Blue Star, it hangs in a gallery over there tolite (Grona) the place i had a show at, which oddly enough , if a painting was like an animal, his would be a possum, hanging from a tree, late at night hiding away,. I always say your work will dictate a sorta of behavior as to where is displayed, i always akin my taste to the bathroom of a dairy queen,. and David is no exception, his work wil find its wall.
