Charlotte Wilder profiles painter David Driskell on the occasion of David Driskell: Renewal and Form at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Rockland, on view through May 11, 2017.

Wilder writes: "Driskell’s work marries the natural with the spiritual, and he’s known for incorporating the iconography of Christianity and of various African and Afro-Atlantic traditions... Many of Driskell’s best-known works are of trees or other greenery, visual interpretations of the pines behind his house or sprigs from his garden."
