David E. DossBorn in 1962
The art of David Doss captures the essence of America's rural landscape, depicting the peacefulness and beauty of North Carolina's Piedmont region. His subject matter, Southern country homes, old barns and antique household objects, are skillfully portrayed with tight brush strokes, in a style reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth.
His talent was recognized early by his local community which supported his talent and forwarded his career. Today, recognized by galleries and collectors nationally and abroad, Doss' work can be found in collections such as RJR/Nabisco, Wachovia Bank & Trust, and North Carolina Trust. Doss was selected by US Art magazine in 1996 as an "Artist to Watch." Doss' popularity lies in his ability to capture the nostalgic feelings of his subjects, creating a classic country look.
