No fine art gallery would be complete without a sampling of David Schluss artwork, and certainly not one in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida! As proud neighbors to one of Florida's most beloved sons, Greg Lane Fine Arts is thrilled to support David Schluss as both a fellow Floridian and an extraordinary artist. We encourage everyone visiting our online gallery to spend at least a few moments admiring his work.
Although he has made Ft. Lauderdale his permanent home, David Schluss was born in Israel. Like many of his contemporaries, Schluss recognized his talents as a painter at an early age. However, his family was not able to financially support his passion. Subsequently, he practiced with whatever materials he could find including charcoal, pencils, and of course, his hands.
Schluss's early improvisations clearly had an impact on his artistic style. Although he later went on to study in Canada's prestigious Ecole de Beaux Arts, Schluss continued to experiment with hand painting. Today, all of Schluss's works are created without the help of any outside instruments. Although this might seem strange to some, Schluss's explanations for doing so are simple: "With the palm of my hands I can get a play of light that I could never achieve with a brush."
Here at Greg Lane Fine Arts, we encourage you to see for yourself the beauty of David Schluss's creations. Our online gallery is host to dozens of sample images for your enjoyment. We know you'll like what you'll find!
