David's biography


David Krchelich (pronounced Ker-che-lich), a native of Pennsylvania, born in 1950 currently lives in Otsego County, New York.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin at Stout with a concentration in sculpture in 1972, Krchelich proceeded to enhance his training by combining sculpture and lighting into the theater arts. This merging of ideas continued from 1972-1985 in Minneapolis, MN in which many collaborations with theater and dance were performed along with his own production studio, DK Studios, which collaborated visual design with authors and playwrights of new work presented to the public.

In 1985 he moved to New York City and continued working in the arts by opening a small art gallery, L'ambiente in the East village. After that he became more involved in construction and interior design.

In 1988 he moved to upstate New York and found Otsego County an exciting and vibrant place to settle. He has involved himself with local theater and community art such as:  The West Kortright Centre’s new stage and lighting systems He founded his business, Interior Services and constructed a workshop for custom cabinetry, specializing in handcrafted woodwork and interior renovations with emphasis on period design. 

In the summer of 2013, the artist  was part of a bench display on the  grounds of Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown, NY.


Three Seasons of Upstate New York

His new work of sculpture relief painting plays with inanimate objects in space uses elements of the environment, combining his life's work involving theater, sculpture and interior spaces. These paintings are from the 2014 collection of relief sculptures on 16” x 20” board that is positioned about an inch off the wall. The objects are attached to the board and protrude about two inches off of it. Masking and spray paint is then applied leaving impressions once the masking is removed.
