David Everett

1950 -
Origin: United States
Born: 1950, Beaumont, Texas

David Everett was born, raised, and still lives in East Texas, and this fact is important in the consideration of the sculptor's work. Preferring to employ the reductive technique of carving in the wood medium, Everett often creates "stacks" of animals based on his childhood animal observations near his family's home in remote Smith Point, Texas. He recalls seeing animals stacked atop other animals in the wild, such as a white heron riding on a cow’s back. He says, "I take that element of the animals stacked on top of each other and push it to a surreal level; I hope in a fairly quiet and understated way."
