David Shaw's intricate sculptures are composed through the juxtaposition of materials such as branches, dirt, steel, glass, holographic laminate, flocking, and found furniture. In our visit to his Brooklyn studio, he discusses his long involvement with the gallery Feature Inc., which closed in 2014 after the death of its influential founder, Hudson. He also reveals why a childhood near-death experience sparked his passion for deep sea diving, and how before discovering sculpture, he was on a path to becoming a brain surgeon.
