The works of David Trowbridge [1945-2009] have been likened to Haiku poems. In explaining his works, Trowbridge refers to a quote by Matisse,"I don't paint things, I paint the relationship between things." Trowbridge does a good job of conveying this rather ethereal notion with his mixed media pieces. "He addresses the relationship between things by combining disparate elements in a way that they seem to be in harmony while simultaneously asserting a sense of of separation," wrote Kristine McKenna. "The materials that Trowbridge uses—exotic woods, linen canvas, gold leaf—underscore the basic belief governing the work, which is that an artwork is a combination of shrine/oasis/confessional. Toward that end, it should be neutral yet compelling, simple but perfectly crafted, authoritative and soothing. Trowbridge's work is all of those things."
