There’s an energetic shift underway in David Gonzales’ art studio. In a small work space with David’s name on the exterior, the artist taps into a dynamic flow of one kind or another.
The obvious: painting, nearly an aerobic workout in its rhythms. Most often vibrant in its colors. Always exuberant and celebrating life. Creating works such as: a bear running headlong toward the viewer, a skier in flight, a basketball player, runners, a peloton of cyclists. Among other subject matter.
And the quiet: meditation and yoga. David, 48, sits for lengths of time on a low, creaky and worn wooden stool, meditating. He practices asana — the physical movements of yoga — in the diffuse light that washes in through the storefront window.
It’s a balance of motion and stillness. So when David opened his studio to Humanitou for a conversation, it too was a dynamic flow among topics of movement and solitude.
We talked about a life-changing revelation, loving those we otherwise might hate, and humility. We talked about being present and generating sacredness, and shifting one’s mindset from self to service.
