Layers of Reference

The patterns on David Drake's paintings are based on those from 60s-70s vintage thermos bottles, cropped, scaled-up and painted on panels made from sheet metal and insulation. The panels mimic both stretched canvases and the materials of the original thermos bottles. As with Super-8, David was drawn to the layers of reference in the thermoses, both nostalgic and art-historical.
