Local illustrator and tattoo artist David Hale presents a one-night gallery show of large-scale ink drawings mounted to panel and limited-edition screen prints. Titled “Simple Gifts” after a Shaker song by the same name, the body of work is intended to honor Mystical Folk lineages. “I feel indebted to folk lineages, particularly of this continent, because they have provided the foundation to my manner of working and my visual influences,” says Hale. “I want to do my best to honor these traditions, to make art that comes from the heart: the voice of the “folk,” the people. To me this is inherently a mystical path, because the heart is the source of divine energy, and that which is spoken from this place is mystical in its very nature.”
