Celebrating the Western Myth and the American Dream
David DeVary is the first to acknowledge that his paintings are not historically accurate depictions of cowboy life in the American West in the 1900s. "In actuality, cowboys led a rough, dangerous and anything-but-glamorous existence," he says. The frontier that this artist explores draws more on the western movies of the '50s, starring matinee-idol cowboys like Roy Rogers and Gene Autry; his upbringing as a Catholic which "gave me the idea of creating modern icons of the figures we hold sacred"; and a highly successful, thirty-year career in the advertising business. It helps to know his history.... David DeVary came to the painter's life rather late in life.
