David Wright

David WrightDavid Wright, a Nashville based artist, periodically departs the 20th century for destinations in the 18th and 19th centuries. He travels back to the raw and often savage American frontier of the fur traders, trappers, the long hunters and mountain men. Davidís vision of the American frontiersman, his knowledge of their clothing, equipment and, most of all his understanding of their character and personality is the product of a life long fascination with the history of his chosen period. He is an avid "buckskinner" and often ventures into the wilderness to recreate for himself the world of the American frontier. It is here, while living off the land, hunting with black powder rifles and bivouacking in primitive campsites that David Wrightís love of history and his art come together. Accuracy in the faithful rendering of historcial artifacts plus a compassionate understanding of the hardships and pleasures of life on the frontier makes David Wrightís work something to see.
