David Guinn is a well known muralist, his wall compositions usually include animals. The four paintings of birds Guinn is showing at Tiger Strikes Asteroid @ 319 North 11th draw on his ability to communicate with a broad audience yet be intimate and attentive. These paintings seem to have a built in soundtrack, by painting punctuation marks in amorphous thought bubbles the birds speak; DoN could almost hear the silence in the painting of the snow owl. By now, David is in Montreal working on a mural with artist collaborator Phillip Adams.

Other artists in the N4TUR3 show @ Tiger Stikes Asteroid include Regin Igloria, Jackie Hoving, Thomas Vance and Beth Brandon – the TRON-ified nature images in this compelling collection of paintings, drawings and constructions depict a dystopian world view with brightly colored mutants, talkative birds and aggressive recombinant objects from the future.
