    “I begin a project when an idea reinforced with a feeling emerges. This feeling navigates between fear, anger, and desire. It motivates me to execute the idea, and it sustains me until the idea has been completed.”
        -David Livingston
    The artist will be exhibiting his MFA work this week at the Pratt Institute’s gallery in Brooklyn.
    David Livingston will show several totemic sculptures constructed with a mud-like composite made primarily with sawdust and branches gathered around Brooklyn. The artist builds his structures using a repetitive process of stacking twigs and applying mud to them. Evoking skyscrapers, trees, and termite mounds, the works draw a relationship between the primal underpinnings of humankind and the constructed contemporary world.
    Additionally, the artist will be showing works from his “Big Dick Project.”
