Matz Gallery Artist for February: David Bover
Artist’s Statement :Fishing and the sea have defined Gloucester for centuries. The sights and smells of the water and boats are everywhere. I love roaming the docks in Gloucester to see what’s happening and perhaps capture a compelling image. These photographs attempt to convey some of the unique marine flavor of Gloucester – especially the rugged beauty of the city’s pride, its fishing boats. And a few shots of the wide horizon’s grander view as well. My focus is on light, color and pleasing patterns, on large or small scale. I hope you enjoy viewing these pictures as much as I’ve enjoyed making them. Walk around Gloucester and check out the waterfront in person! Biography: This show combines my lifelong passion for boats and the sea with the art of photography. I first visited Gloucester during college, while in Boston for a work term at a fishing boat design firm. Originally trained as a naval architect, I’ve since moved on to management consulting but never lost my love of boats. A Lexington resident, I also own a condo in Gloucester and enjoy spending time on Cape Ann. I’m a member of the First Parish Fine Arts Photography Club in Concord and have exhibited at the State House in Boston and at venues in Lexington and Concord. Technicalities: My camera is a handheld Nikon D80 with a 28-70mm f2.8 lens. I used an Epson 4000 printer with Enhanced Matte and Premium Glossy paper. Photos are mounted with acid free mats and backing behind anti-reflective UV glass.
