David Dorsey takes great care to create Western paintings that are realistic rather than photorealistic. His goal is to move viewers to become involved, to fill in the blanks.
“I want viewers to look at a piece and be able to become connected to the image by allowing them to interpret areas within the piece that are not as defined as others,” Dorsey says. “I am always trying to move toward a looser feel and more expressive brushwork in my pieces.”
A Nebraska native, Dorsey lives within 75 miles of his childhood home in Newport. “I’m from a ranching family,” he says. “My family has actually been in Nebraska since it was a territory; since 1857.”
