"Country House" by David Sulak Original Art
Paper and tape model | 9.5" x 7.5" x 4"
David Sulak (b. 1967) is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in Louise, Texas. Sulak’s work is a shrine to everyday items that have made an impression on him: an Oldsmobile seen around his Texas town, his grandmother’s couch, the kitchen of the house he and his mother share. Some of his drawings portray a single object, while other pieces contain a multitude of these nostalgic objects. His sculptural representations are composed of paper and tape and contain astonishing detail, reserved only for things of great love. Sulak works entirely from memory; whether he is making a sculptural rendering of the state school he attended or drawing a dashboard of car, his attention to minutia demonstrates his appreciation for the subject and the memory it conjures.
Sulak has been a gallery artist at SAGE Studio since June 2018. SAGE represented Sulak's work at New York City's Outsider Art Fair, the premiere art fair in the world for self-taught artists, in 2019 and 2020.
