My name is David Esquivel. I'm a 24 year old self taught painter from Aurora, IL. My work has always been about time, about what was here at the beginning. I do my best to remove myself from the process, to make work that is organic and feels as if time itself has eroded everything, leaving behind what is most resilient and important. The remnants are left in full view, exposed under a harsh light, where nothing hides. Everything is there, at peace with itself and everything around it.
