Profile de David Mullen

David Mullen

David Mullen has practiced fine art photography for over 35 years. He views photography as a great printmaking art and has worked in processes such as Van Dyke brown, platinum, silver gelatin, Ilfochrome, as well as painting in water media such as watercolor, gouache, and acrylics. The last four years Mullen has worked in digital format and printing with pigments on fine matte paper. Printed on archival matte paper, Mullen's photos bear a remarkable likeness to traditional images of platinum and Van Dyke brown. Photographers that have informed Mullen's approach to technique and formation of different perspectives include Minor White, Wyn Bullock, and Alfred Stieglitz. Painters such as Dali, Egon Schiele, Francis Bacon, Rufino Tamayo, and Kathe Kollwitz, are also major influences. Mullen's art changes as his emotions and perspectives of the world shift. The fact that reality is constantly in flux constantly reminds him to explore and play with imagination and technique. Mullen has no formal education. He was born in the woods and saved just in the nick of time from a rabid ferret by felonious monks, who lived right down the lane in a famous monastery, which begs to remain anonymous. The monks were very patient with Mullen as they educated him in the ways of the universe. It was at this monastery that Mullen learned to jam (still a great source of pleasure today).

  • I wish it was a minority but the fundamentalist right wing movement is organized and powerful.

  • Yes... censored. Probably the worst heritage of the WASP nation. Hopefully a minority now!

  • Thank you for your comment David. "Roasting Chestnuts" is an absolute favorite here. It has the atmosphere of a parabel. and the romanticism of a fairy tale.
