Dave Aris attributes his work to many influences, not the least of which is the shear joy of creating. David lives on Gabriola Island, in the midst of the Salish Sea.  

"I paint for the joy of it. In a world that seems so unsettled and often callous, I find solace in my studio. It’s not a form of escapism, but rather of calm where I can think clearly and appreciate the good that can be found in the world. I look over our beautiful gardens to the Salish Sea. Such a magnificent view is very conducive to creativity. I am inspired to paint the ocean, the trees and the creatures that inhabit them. However it is fun and challenging to explore new ways of expressing myself through my paintings. In the past few years I have abstracted my images by pixilating them. No surprise that the inspiration for this technique came from computers that go wonky. Art is in almost everything I do. I usually view the world around me with what I would term an artistic eye. I notice changes of light, a certain twist in a tree branch or some unusual reflection. When I do my art work these things play an important roll. ART is life!" - Dave Aris
