“The real purpose of painting is to give pleasure. My work is an expression of joy. Joy
in color. Joy in gesture. Joy in the act of creating itself.” – Artist David Skillicorn
American abstract painter David Skillicorn sees painting as a pure celebration. Skillicorn has dazzled clients with his luminous
abstract artworks for over 20 years, based in New York and Massachusetts.
He explores complex spatial and color relationships through texture, organic
line, and sensuous fields of color. Skillicorn creates
sophisticated, intuitive paintings alive with surface texture and lush paint of vibrant colors in
bold strokes over atmospheric passages in mixed media works on canvas. Skillicorn’s paintings breathe elegance, calm,
joy, and exquisite beauty.
Interestingly, Skillicorn is a veteran documentary filmmaker whose Emmy award-winning
career spanned some 20 years. It was through film and cinematography that the artist
not only fine-tuned his eye for artistic detail and composition but uncovered a passion
for painting. While filming a story about artists on Cape Cod, he met up with a master
painter at dawn to document his artistic process. As Skillicorn filmed, the artist set up his
blank canvas, and with just five or six strokes, created what Skillicorn called – “magic.”
Though it had never occurred to him before, this single artistic experience moved the
filmmaker to himself become a painter.
Skillicorn pursued his passion and, for the past twenty years, has been drawn to abstract
painting because, for him, it is the most challenging, the most mysterious, and
ultimately, the most magical. Skillicorn shows his work regularly at premiere galleries
throughout the country, and his paintings are part of innumerable public and private
