Although I do not personally identify with New Mexico's history, having moved from the Netherlands to grow up in Germany, and moving to the US as an adult, it is the history I see inscribed and belonging to the land. As a transient observer trying to integrate different cultural backgrounds, I am interested in bringing to light our common humanity, making history visible, and confronting my contemporaries with the past so that their insights might inform the present. The memories I use are vicarious, acquired intellectually and shaped by contemporary politics. Yet they are deeply felt on a human level, based on parallel personal experiences of migration, hardship and loss within a different context.

D.A. Bishop was born in rural Virginia and has lived in many places along the Eastern Seaboard before settling in Sonoma County, California.
Bishop is primarily self-taught. He discovered, after a brief period at the Atlanta School of Art, that life experience was more enticing than a structured art education.
Thus began various careers as a billboard painter, a graphic artist for a theatre company, and an itinerant limner.
