Landscape Theology

I am honored to link you to an online exhibition of my landscape paintings. Michael Schwartz, Professor of History and Philosophy of Art at Augusta State University, selected the paintings and wrote this review: 

Majestic Worldspaces of Sentient Nature
David Titterington’s paintings sing rhapsodic songs of the love of nature - nature as Love. Not to the exclusion of human culture - yet, somehow, nature on its own terms.
Environments slip and slide between and amongst micro-, meso-, and macro- orders of being – from microbes to animals to skies to starfields: magical worldspaces of sentience, the resident beings variously implicated in tempos of birth, life, play, joy, death, decay, and more.

Titterington’s glorious integral art makes visible the unseen radiance, mystery, and wonder of nature in all its Aliveness and endless Perspectivism – inviting us to enter into the direct feel and felt sense of these otherwise secreted and beautiful regions of the Kosmos.

While even seemingly ordinary landscapes are revealed in unexpected and novel ways. An art then that is a sheer gift in its magical disclosures of the incalculable orders of Life and Love.

opening as Love

Harold: Maude? 
Maude: Yeah? 
Harold: [pulls the stamped coin from the arcade out of his pocket] Here. 
Maude: A gift! 
[reads the engraving] 
Maude: "Harold loves Maude."... and Maude loves Harold. This is the nicest gift I've received in years. 
[she throws the stamped coin into the water] 
Harold: [gasps, bemused] 
Maude: So I'll always know where it is. 

May all beings be Free and in Love.
