About David Alexander Flinn

David Alexander Flinn’s sculptures and installations explore themes of confinement, endurance, and mortality. In his work the artist uses industrial and synthetic materials such as chains, steel bars, neon, rubber, and glass, often pairing such man-made materials with organic forms like tree branches, flowers, and rocks. In doing so, he seeks to question nature’s capacity for resilience. At the 2012 NADA Hudson art fair, Flinn exhibited a work that included a heavy-duty tire suspended by a massive chain over an iridescent mirror, creating an effect of nostalgia tinged with unease and constraint.
