Gallery : David Jacobs

I paint and sculpt easily recognizable subjects to explore how different cultures interpret the same information. Using signifiers in imagery, I encourage the viewer to create his own narrative.

David Jacobs, "Hipster Aquarium"

A single signifier may have a completely different meaning to diverse individuals, especially if cultural experiences, uses, or traditions for that specific indicator vary.

David Jacobs, "The Bestest"

However, in today’s globalized and interconnected world, these meanings tend to converge.

David Jacobs, "Cruisin"

My art embraces those convergences, but focuses on the dissimilar conclusions that different viewers can draw out of an image.
