Slader’s abstract works celebrate the movement and expression of the human figure, captured in disjointed parts and brilliantly colored patterns. A leg, an arm, a foot may escape one panel to be painted on another, creating a unified yet dynamic piece.

'blowing in from chicago' by david slader, artist

When this painting was little more than a colored sketch, she and I were listening in my studio to KMHD Radio play tracks from the 1957 Blue Note album, “Blowing in from Chicago.” The painting liked the music and chose it as her name (paintings do that kind of thing).
