David's Aylsworth has spent years cultivating his painting practice - with exuberance, quirkiness,
and imperfections embedded in his method. Refinement has never been an Aylsworth goal, yet
in Wherefore &  Hence he reveals a certain restraint evinced by more simplistic  compositions.

When describing his work,art historian Sandra Zalman states, "Where there  are brushstrokes, drips,
clotting and scraping... it is evident in the almost discursive way that shapes coalesce to articulate
a larger story of meditation- the fine line between form and figure, or plane and ground, which
speaks to the very human quality of finding opportunity in uncertainty, near connections,
qualifications, and do-overs. The paintings may play, and tease, and flirt, but their force
derives from the quiet, unassuming way they confront these larger concerns."
