David Coblitz provides products & services for interior designers and architects that enhance their business & offerings. These include showcasing their results through quality, affordable photography in difficult situations, Evidence Based Design (EBD) artwork for relieving stress & pain in medical facilities, and reflection free targeted, artistic messaging for commercial facilities. All of his offerings can be referred to as “functional art”. The function may vary depending on the location & purpose of the piece. The range of functions includes improving patient well-being, relieving stress, messaging clients or staff in subtle ways, or simply “soul food”.
As a photographic artist, Mr. Coblitz’ focus is on making images in fresh & innovative ways. One of his goals is to prevent a reaction from viewers such as, “I’ve got a camera; I could do that.” This reaction is rare with his photos.
An example of this is his photographic sculpture, which is 3D sculpture with a photograph conformed to the surface.
His current work also involves printing direct on di-bond aluminum. This creates an extremely durable image that requires no reflection inducing glass in front of it for protection, hence yielding a much more intimate involvement of the viewer with the image. You can literally feel the texture in the photograph without damaging it. He also has created caricatures made photographically, and photos that change content or appearance as you approach or move around them.
You can currently see his work on exhibit at the Creative Art Gallery & Framing in Lindenwood, MO; Arch Framing in Maplewood, MO; Off Arsenal Gallery in St. Louis, MO, Schon in Clayton, MO, and Art Biz Gallery in Winchester, MO.
