Dave Quick uses an assemblage of found objects to create narratives that focus on our relationships with our machines, our media, and other aspects of life in a technologically careening world. The question that pervades his work: man the tool user or tool the man user? Quick is in tune with the fact that technology is now more a part of our lives than ever before, and changes how man experiences everything.
Quick received his MFA from UCLA, is a founding board member of the Museum of Neon Art, and often contributes to the art and architecture reviews for the Santa Monica Mirror. He was commissioned by the Santa Monica Cultural Affairs to create an installation at the inaugural GLOW festival in Santa Monica in 2008. His work is housed in numerous private collections including: Tom Patchett, Chuck and Judy Goodstein, Scott Becker, Giuseppe Spadaccini, and the Yosemite Museum.
