Opening reception for David Imlay's new painting series titled, urbanScapes2.

David Imlay’s approach to painting draws influence from twentieth century American Contemporary Realism as well as Photorealism which both emerged in the Late 1960’s and early 1970’s. In his paintings of downtown streetscapes, freeway overpasses, empty diners and phone booths, the artist asks the viewer to make a personal connection to stillness and isolation. His usage of warm light and limited color are meant to conjure an emotional dissonance tinged with nostalgia and hope.
