David Underwood is an artist who specializes in making composite photographic constructions and other mixed-media assemblages. Most of his work involves combining several original photographic images into integrated compositions, and employing a variety of construction and presentation methods. Formal and aesthetic, yet also invoking open interpretations of content and meaning, his work involves a wide variety of subject matter from a wide variety of locations. His photo work often deals with photography itself and the various options explored while photographing and while finishing artworks and assemblages for presentation. He also makes provocative mixed-media artworks that include thought-provoking, ambiguous text.
