Biography from a third party submitted on 11/19/2007:
David Florimbi often explores notions of surf culture as well as historical and contemporary methods of art-making.  As a surfer himself, Florimbi merges his own practice of surfing with his art.  The sport of surfing continues to capture a wide and diverse audience.  Referencing the Finish Fetish movement of L.A. artists in the 1960s and 1970s, Florimbi often employs the polyester resins commonly used in surfboard manufacturing to created glossy, water-like reflective surfaces in his small paintings.

Expanding his series and responding to the multi-media world we live in today, Florimbi works simultaneously as a painter, a filmmaker, and a photographer. Referencing the concept of time-motion studies begun in California in 1872 by Edward Muybridge, Florimbi photographs multiple moving images taken from the television. From these still photographs he paints a photorealistic original oil painting, including the defects of the television’s pixilation.

Florimbi then films his painting with a video camera and replays it on the television set – and, once again, photographs the image. He then paints another original painting on top of the photographic print.  In the final step, he photographs this painting. In doing so, Florimbi has cleverly challenged the concept of the original versus the reproduction. The artist attempts to redefine the boundaries of painting, seeing the act of painting as a means to the end. Although utilizing a variety of mechanical technologies, his art still constitutes an original work.

Florimbi’s method explores artistic process, and reveals the ways in which the traditional boundaries of photography can be manipulated, reinvented and ultimately redefined.
