David Scanavino’s interest in ubiquitous, yet often invisible, institutional environments and materials that subliminally shape our social understanding are often informed from his interest in exploring memory—his own as well as the larger culture. This excavatory work has influenced a wide range of pieces, including large institutional installations made from mass-produced floor tiles, hand-made paper pulp paintings and most recently a series of allegorical landscape paintings executed on calf hides.View CV
