I just find out yesterday that the work that I have known David Brody for: invented landscapes with multiple points of view, sometimes evoking the past and sometimes the future, are at least partly based on some hard data from the rugged mountains of upstate New York.
Here is what he says about these drawings:
“I photographed a sketchbook from the summer of 1993. It begins in the Adirondacks and ends up with two weeks in the backcountry of Yosemite. I’ve been disappearing into the mountains and painting/drawing regularly since I was in my early 20s. Drawing from life under time pressure (one has to leave time to find one’s way back to a campsite!) is very different from my studio work— a sort of supplement to the meandering I do in my studio abstractions.”
