Artist David Van Gough considers his work “Necrorealism” often examining issues of mortality and transformation. His site states:
“Using allegory and alchemy to chronicle a heightened sense of mortality, and the madness of the minds subterranean fathoms, his work is an emotional and spiritual excavation for purpose.
“An Honoree Artist of 2010 at the San Diego Art Institute, his work has been hosted in a succession of solo and featured showcases on both sides of the Atlantic, including major exhibits at the Oceanside Museum of Art, Stephen Romano gallery (NY), Bash Contemporary (SF) and Hyaena gallery (LA), as well as being represented by the London based gallery, Macabre.

“Currently he works and exhibits from Studio V at La Bodega gallery in historic Chicano park, San Diego.”
