Towards the Door We Never Opened: Recent Sculpture

September 10-28, 2001

David Olivant creates complex narrative sculptures in clay, inspired by themes typical to traditional South Asian culture. Olivant’s sculptural works develop a personal mythology and “mark a return to an explicit figuration and the use of complex archetypal imagery.” Olivant teaches Painting and Drawing at CSU Stanislaus. Born and educated in England, his MA is from the Royal College of Art, London, and BA from the Falmouth School of Art. His solo exhibitions include: the Fresno Art Museum, the Art Heritage Gallery, New Delhi, India; Stephen Solovy Fine Art, Chicago; and the Center for International Contemporary Art, New York
