David DIMichele Adds Fantasy to Installation Art

David DiMichele is one of those extraordinary artist who believes art as a transcendental state of meditation. A California native, DiMichele studied at University of California at Berkeley, U.C. Santa Cruz. and Cal State University, Long Beach. His diverse influences of reflecting the nature of his work, include conceptualist Jim Melchen at Berkeley and the New York School abstract Narsula Jack work at Long Beach. David DiMichele's involvement with abstract drawing, painting, and  sculpture inspired him, to create a series of installation projects in the 80's and 90's at venues such as Simard/Holm Gallery, Laguna Art Museum, Claremont Graduate University of Art, Cal State Fullerton, and Irvine Fine Arts Center.In referring to Installation art, this happens when the artist faces technology with art making artists, galleries, fairs and museums more asseable to  DiMichele presenting in various ways, questioning its coventions and traditionst one.has. DiMichele uses imaginative photography and art direction. His multi media approach is actually to say the least, good conversation.His work is focused on abstraction, initially with non-objection imagery. By examining the concept of abstract art in various ways, questioning its conventions and traditions DiMichele presents his works more effectively.Through large scale photography he creates photographs that depict fantasy installations in grandiose exhibition spaces. He does this by building scale models of his exhibition spaces and creates within the spaces original art works in drawing, painting, and sculpture mediums. The installations are then photographed with a large format camera to create his final works.One might ask what inspires DiMichele to create these piecies, referred to as Pseudo Documentation photographs. It is inspired through his fantasy and as a installation artist, his passion for monumental museum and gallery architecture and his love of abstract form. His works reverse the usual situations whereby on artwork is created, then documented by a photograph and reproduced in a book or magazine as a representation of his work.In a world of futuristic contemplation and new inovations David DiMichele continues his rich, dream like images drawing the reverse to imagine oneself on the exhibition hall, but the settings are not all together inviting.Like this reporter, there are many who admire DiMichele's works, which have been written about in the L.A.Times, L.A. Weekley, N.Y. Art Review, Plattinum, New Art and many others.For more information visit www.daviddimichele.com.
