David Palmer: You Are Here, a 90-second film by Jeffrey Pedersen and Peter West

 

"...like Rosenquist, Lichtenstein, and others over the past half-century who have painted the visual racket of a consumer society, Palmer manifests not so much a love-hate relationship with the modern condition of image assault as an awe at its immensity and the thoroughness of its presence in our consciousness."  - Peter Frank

David Palmer shows regularly at William Turner Gallery in Santa Monica, along with other Los Angeles artists including Charles Arnoldi, Ed Moses, Andy Moses, Peter Alexander, Larry Bell, Michel Tabori, Roland Reiss, Jennifer Wolf, Curtis Ripley, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Lodato. He moved to Los Angeles after grauduate school to become part of the growing Los Angeles art scene, inspired by earlier Los Angeles artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, David Hockney, Robert Irwin and others. The increasing number of Los Angeles art galleries, and especially Santa Monica art galleries, created an exciting time in the Los Angeles art scene. Having regularly visited New York galleries such as Leo Castelli, Gagosian, Pace and Mary Boone while living on the east coast, and been inspired by the many New York artists and Los Angeles artists included in the Whitney Biennial, he was thrilled to find the Los Angeles art scene growing into a world class culural incubator for art music and film.
