David is displaying one of his more sensual and provocative figure abstracts during the month of November at the Montpelier Arts Center & Mansion in Laurel, MD. The exhibition, called the “All Hung Open Exhibition”, is the complete opposite to a curated show. This gives the artist a unique opportunity to showcase a risky, unorthodox or new piece of art. The exhibit runs from November 2 thru November 30. The All Hung Open Exhibition is at Montpelier Arts Center, 9652 Muirkirk Road, Laurel, MD 20708, phone: 301-377-7800.
David is selling merchandise such as T-shirts, Pillows, Lampshades, iPhone cases, Coffee Mugs, Postcards and more at his online “marcoimage” Zazzle store. The store features imagery from many of his abstract paintings and designs with subjects such as music, nature, sports and the human figure. Stop on by for a visit!

David has begun building an online gallery of his artwork on SaatchiArt.com where he will be selling original watercolor paintings and open edition fine art prints. SaatchiArt.com is an online version of the Saatchi Gallery, a London gallery for contemporary art. SaatchiArt.com aims to assist art collectors from around the globe in their search for contemporary artwork by emerging artists to purchase and collect.
David Ralph, founder and owner of the imaging and conceptual company Marco Image & Concept, is a contemporary artist and illustrator who lives in Greenbelt, Maryland, USA. About ten years ago, David had a vision to create a series of abstract watercolor paintings that explored the female figure through curve, line, and a composition of varying shapes of color, value, and pattern. This exploration led to a distinctive style that has shaped David’s unique brand of painting and illustration since. In trying to describe and categorize his style of art, David Ralph has coined the term “Geoformism”. According to David, Geoformism is defined as a style of contemporary abstract art that focuses on the form of a subject (or object) and its underlying geometric essence. It contains elements of both geometric abstraction and figurative realism. Today, David continues to create abstract compositions of the female figure as well as other themes of interest such as nature, music, people and sports. home | about | gallery | prints | contact
