David will be displaying a music-themed painting titled “Delta Blues” from December 7-31 at the Montpelier Arts Center in Laurel, MD. The watercolor painting, displayed here, takes you to a bar on Beale street in Memphis, TN. A Mississippi-delta blues band plays before a small, dedicated crowd of blues enthusiasts in a “juke joint” bar. The juried exhibition, called the “Annual Patuxent Art League Juried Exhibition”, showcases selected works by artists in MD, VA and the Washington, DC area. The opening reception is this Sunday afternoon from 2-4pm, December 7, 2014. The exhibition takes place at the Montpelier Arts Center, 9652 Muirkirk Road, Laurel, MD 20708, phone: 301-377-7800.

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.
