David Abecassis is a painter who explores installation. Past exhibitions include, Mercer Union Gallery in Toronto Canada, Field Projects Gallery in New York, the New York Armory and the Bronx River Art Center.

I work in painting using photographs from the private and public realm as source material. They are usually collaged, worked and evolve as the painting does. I have been exploring how memory connects us as people. When one can relate to another’s memory or thought by looking at an image, it creates a sense of  identification. Hopefully the emotions solicited from looking can repair some discord. I try to find threads of thought and weave them into commentary on life’s musings and tragedies.
