Andover Artist - David Sullivan
From Andover Answers
David Sullivan had a long and varied career as an artist. He came to Andover in 1969 when he opened a gallery at 91 Main Street with
He chose egg tempura for his early works because it dried quickly with no coating. At that time he painted portraits, not totally representational, but as he saw them.
By 1995 he had moved from portraits to abstracts, or specific abstracts, as he called them.Forever experimenting he stacked layers of pencil drawings drawn on translucent paper to create a 3-d effect.
In the late 90's he studied Cezanne's works and created versions of his work designed to emphasize Cezanne's use of line and color. He actually redrew Cezanne's painting with his own interpretation. He donated "After Cezanne: Still Live with Flowered Pitcher", to Memorial Hall Library where it is hung on the stairway to the second floor.
