David Labbett is an emerging, young artist with a funky, yet introspective style. He began his studies in Human Geography, but began concentrating on art while at Concord University in Montreal and did a summer program in France and Italy. At the University of Denver he focused on photography, sculpture, and video production.

Labbett’s work is both two and three dimensional. There is a constant flow of rings and upward mobility in all of his creations. His crude action figures are a simplified mixture of a G.I. Joe with circus performers. The different entities that go into each work create an incredible amount of intensity and kinetic energy. His figures are like ballerinas performing a representational battle through dance. His work is very much about humanity, struggle, success, and interconnectedness of the world.

“As the body is exposed to experience, it absorbs and processes the information, storing its memory. This is what I am interested in communicating visually-the unspoken word that describes the human condition.” David Labbett began exhibiting at the Lowe Gallery in 1996.
