David E. Weaver (1956-2010)
David was born in Bellevue, Ohio on November 20th, 1956. He was a gifted child from the beginning of his life, both an artist and musician. David joined the United States Air Force and moved Texas where he trained as an air traffic controller. He began working at the Travis County Sherriff’s Department in Austin, TX, after receiving an honorable discharge from his military service. David started his career in law enforcement but it was in forensic science art, crime scene investigation, and fingerprint identification that he found his true calling. During this time David also continued his artistic pursuits, painting, learning ceramics.
In 1986 David moved to Alaska and furthered his career by working at the Alaska State Crime Lab. In Anchorage David expanded his work in fingerprint identification and crime scene investigation. He was an inventor, and developed numerous patents, including the Vapor Wand— a cutting-edge technology that pioneered a completely new means of fingerprint recovery. He was bestowed with the 1992 Outstanding Civilian of the Year Award for his dedication to the field of criminal justice in Alaska. Despite his success in the field of forensic science, David had always dreamt of leaving the field to pursue art full-time. At the peak of his career, David left Alaska and moved to West Virginia to make this dream a reality. He opened an art gallery and pottery studio, and for 13 years he worked as an artist. David was a potter, as well as a painter in the style of the Dutch old masters of Flemish Realism. He also taught painting workshops and gave private painting lessons around the country. His works can still be viewed on around the country. David Weaver was truly a Renaissance man. He was driven, alive with ideas, and his creativity, unwavering focus, and dedication to his work is reflected in the quality of his art, his forensic science success, the numerous inventions he patented, and the many students of art and forensics who continue his legacy. As an artist, David Weaver was known for his love of Flemish Realism and work on intricate still lifes. We offer several fine works of David’s Flemish Realism Still life limited edition offset works. Each print came with The certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by David Weaver as well as his finger print on COA. Please also note back of each print bear his fingerprint with his initialed.
In The Style Of Flemish Realism
This photograph of a flower still life is stylized in the tones and arrangement used in Flemish Realism paintings. Flemish refers to the Dutch and North Belgian region of Europe and the art movement Flemish Realism spanned across the 17th century, depicting domestic scenes as well as the materialistic still lifes seen in everyday life. Floral paintings were common in this era, usually painted before a dark background and illuminated by a bold focal light source.
