David DuBose’s images draw strongly from personal, family and political histories, often incorporating appropriated photographic or illustrative elements. Painterly and expressive in character, they are immediate responses to experience, memory and emotion. His juxtaposition of isolated elements and visual layers can suggest a narrative, bringing together diverse ideas and providing a vehicle for social, cultural and political self-examination.
DuBose makes original prints, paintings and mixed media works on paper. He has had artist residencies in Germany, Canada, Ireland and the United States. He lived in Ireland for thirteen years, where he taught printmaking at the University of Ulster in Belfast and served as the Director of Seacourt Print Workshop for many years before eventually returning to the United States. DuBose teaches art at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and continues to exhibit regionally, nationally and internationally. His works belong to numerous public and private collections, including the AIB Collection of Modern Irish Art and the Colorprint USA Collection, among others.
