Artist

David Janzen

David Janzen is an Edmonton artist who studied painting and drawing at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary. Since 1990, he has depicted a wide range of technological devices and forms of ’engineered still life‘, frequently against a clear sky backdrop. His paintings use natural history as a scenic foil for visual descriptions of human activity, and are often a matter-of-fact account of our desensitization to boundless settlement and ’progress‘. After living in Calgary for 22 years, David returned to Edmonton in 2001. He occupies a studio in the McCauley district and works part-time as an art facilitator and exhibition coordinator at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts.
