We are fundamentally connected to landscapes. We inhabit them, shape them, and imbue them with significance. Some connections are universal, some are highly personal. Regardless, landscapes give context to the events that shape our lives.

When I reflect back on a landscape, I recall impressions more than details. In fact, my feelings and emotions about a place are what allow the details to persist in a meaningful way. Sometimes my impressions accumulate over many encounters with a particular place; sometimes they build on themselves and evolve through reflection; often they blend into a montage of places once distinct.

The images presented in Remembered Landscapes capture lasting impressions: the meditative quality of the horizon, the depth of reflected sky on water, the vibrancy of seasonal change. Through the use of color, form, and texture my images explore how memories re-form themselves into landscapes of meaning and significance.

Dave Tilton was represented by Grace Chosy Gallery, 1825 Monroe Street, Madison, WI.
Recognized as one of the Madison, Wisconsin area's leading art galleries, the Grace Chosy Gallery closed due to the retirement of Owner/Director Karin Ketarkus in late summer 2013.  It had show contemporary national and regional fine art in a variety of media since 1979.

Dave is also represented at Edgewood Orchard Galleries, 4140 Peninsula Players Road, Fish Creek, WI (920-868-3579). Set on an 80 acre orchard and housed in a restored barn, the gallery and grounds are a favorite of those who make Door County a seasonal destination.
