David Estey is a painter in Belfast, a Maine native who also lived, taught, and exhibited in the Mid-Atlantic states and North Carolina. He has degrees from Rhode Island School of Design and George Washington University. He studied painting a year in Rome, Italy, and 14 years at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. His work has run the gamut from realistic landscapes, portraits, and figure drawings to abstract expressionism — and now total improvisation.

“I enjoy working from scratch to create extraordinary and compelling abstract images, intrinsically based on the elements and principles of good design.  Sometimes narrative references emerge and remain, but they are subordinate to the aesthetic whole. I’m after a visual improvisation that is felt viscerally in the heart and soul, with or without a narrative context — a surprise that makes me think, ‘Wow, look at that!’”

David is represented by Carver Hill Gallery in Rockland, Maine and Studio 53 in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
