David is an innovate and experimental artist with creative ideas and, like most artists, aims to engage awareness / emotion / feelings in the viewer.  The extra dimensions in his work are tension and organics. His work must have energy or contradiction – there is the norm, the average, the setting and there is a schism, a thrust, a danger, a radical which gives life and energy to the painting.  He paints inanimate objects like rocks and machines as if they were living, had skin and have a connection with people.  He also enjoys experimenting with a variety of media and techniques to get the feeling he wants to express in the art he creates -  everything from

house-paint rollers and brushes to bricking and tiling trowels.

 

David likes strong urban and industrial energy.  He makes art to music; sometimes loud and often the shapes on the canvas emulate the sounds and usually has several projects on the go at one time.
