ABOUT THE ARTIST

Although landscape has been an influence and used as a reference in my work throughout my career, I would not call myself a landscape artist. As a consequence I was very grateful when Duane offered me a residency in his Isle of Lewis studio, as he believed that I might respond to this location in a different kind of way. A number, but not all of the paintings in the exhibition have been made as a result of this experience. I thank him for the opportunity and the fact that I was the final artist to benefit from this makes it all the more special.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

David toys with everyday locations, the omnipresent Scottish tenement building transformed into grand colosseums, the commuter masses into a sea of figures, the archetypical lushness of a meadow and the empty forest. However, within these comfortable stages, the foreign or ‘unreal’ are often placed; candy striped lighthouses planted far from the sea, air balloons without their pilots, life size beached toy boats habited by birds, all of which adds to a specific sense of surrealism and foreboding danger. The overarching themes in the work are the ideas of stability and safety and the idealised notions of the remote and rural.
