Piece description from the artist
While sitting in front of a failed storefront in lower Manhattan, I pictured in my head what the last year on that bench would look like as a photograph. At any one moment, it would appear as a straight photograph would, but the entire year would end up being something entirely different. The conglomeration of foot traffic, the repeating sight of the owners, the shifting of colors from day to night. It became a 4th dimensional picture existing outside of any one sliver of time. With these photographs, I am exploring this same amalgamation using the human body and common artifacts viewed from a perspective outside of time. Each photo is without fabrication. They show only what could have been personally observed if we were able to see multiple moments at once, as a atemporal fly on the wall.
Taking root in fine art and commercial marketing, Davy Mellado focuses on providing work of finite detail and attention. The more you look closer at his work, the more there is to discover. This is one of the many reasons why a large medium works well for his pieces. Davy spends time calculating the precise movement of your attention as your eyes pace over the canvas. The dynamics of contrast, relationship, and hierarchy create a sense of complexity while keeping your eyes intrigued. Davy has studied Architectural design at a private liberal arts school and has been taught by a fine arts professional before that. While recently entering into the professional art field, Davy had many companies feature his work on their website, as well as utilized in mass print to multiple countries. Davy has also collaborated with Emmy Award-winning Video Boutique company Evolve IMG. Many of his influences include Jean Jullien, Peter Belanger, and Harry Callahan. Starting off in photography, Davy has spent years shooting pictures, refining his work and receiving many positive reviews and comments. But what seems to spark his interest is the close attention to making strange scenes look realistic. This is Davy Mellado. Welcome, and enjoy his work.
