Eric Bookhardt wrote a review of the Louisiana Contemporary show at the Ogden in the Gambit. The animation i did with music by Alec Vance received an honorable mention, as did a video installation by Courtney Egan.
I have 3 pieces in the Ogden Louisiana Contemporary Juried show. 2 prints and an animation i did in collaboration with Alec Vance.
I also have a print in the Franklin Alum show at the Art Salon at 4432 Magazine.
Reggie Rodrigue wrote a review of the Southern Open with some kind words for my work and a picture of one of my new prints.
“David Sullivan, the other second-tier winner, offers three pieces that also touch on childhood. He creates semi-abstract, cloud-shaped, 3D paintings by printing palimpsestic, digital graphics that are culled from cartoons, video games, and pop references onto cut aluminum and cardboard. The content of Sullivan’s pieces revolves around the BP oil spill of 2010. In works such as “Well Connected,” “Cloud Cuckoo Land,” and “Pump Me Up,” Sullivan explores the sinister, labyrinthine and nebulous predicament that the Gulf South is in due to its ties to oil and gas production. The pieces are the fine art equivalent of BP’s new commercial advising tourists to return to the Gulf Coast: cheerfully ominous.”

I did an animation with Alec Vance for the Duets show at the Loyola art gallery in New Orleans.
The show opens May 30th and runs through the summer. There will be a closing at the beginning of September.
A slightly different version of our animation can be seen on vimeo:
