Following an early interest in ceramics, David Thauberger turned to painting, a medium he found more suitable for an exploration of frontality and flatness. His themes and subjects remain closely allied with the landscape and its place in the collective conscious through the iconic images of popular culture. In the large, frontal format the representation of the image becomes synonymous with the image as symbol. The impersonal techniques of smooth surfaces, unmodulated colour and elements from the commercial world (mactac, glitter) are all indicators of the influence popular culture has had upon society's perception of the landscape. Thauberger's directness of expression has been strongly influenced by his interest in Saskatchewan folk artists.
