(July 12, 1941 – November 8, 2017)
Our hearts are broken for the sudden loss of David Lang. His legacy will live on long beyond him, most notably in the form of his paintings and incredibly intricate and captivating kinetic sculptures. Like them, David was always in motion as a maker of amazing things.
We feel in these that the momentum of his life and work lives on even now, in its ability to move us to powerful emotion. It is said that in sharing a sadness, it is diminished by half, but through sharing a happiness, one doubles it. We know that David’s loss is shared by all those who knew him and his work, yet we take great comfort in and celebrate the ways they made the world a better and more interesting place.
Yes, our hearts may be broken, yet both halves are filled to overflowing with the love and gratitude for having known him.
Farewell David, you will be remembered and missed…
