David Vickery


David Vickery is an artist based in Cushing, Maine. He has been working from his studio there since 1991. He is known for his precise realism.


My work is about the merger of nature and culture—an attempt to make sense of our place in the world. I look at interior spaces and our imprint on the landscape with an eye for the imperfect, quirky, and sometimes elegant adaptations we’ve made in order to live here.
