David Rathman’s watercolor paintings of stereotypically masculine subjects like cowboys, race cars, sports insignias and rock and roll album covers evoke a playful dialogue on subjects drawn from the American psyche.  In this segment, Rathman, an MCAD alumnus and recipient of awards from the Jerome, Bush, and McKnight Foundations, prepares for shows in Lost Angeles’ Mark Moore Gallery and Minneapolis’ Weinstein Gallery.





David Rathman’s “Zaire” translates iconic moments from The Rumble in the Jungle, a historic boxing event, into a stirring black-and-blue toned watercolor time capsule.
