About the Artist
David is a fine art printmaker, living and working in Cambridge, England. Much of his work is concerned with issues related to tensions between essentially opposite approaches to art – representation vs abstraction, perceptual vs conceptual, formality vs freedom, polish vs rawness, evocation of shallow (2-D) vs deep (3-D) space, natural vs man-made, …….
Like many artists, his motivation is sometimes to celebrate the wonders around us, at other times to criticise or qualify. Current major themes include landscape and architecture, portrait and human figure, and abstract. He’s particularly interested in Architecture, Spatial and Colour Perception and Science and Mathematics – he worked as a Mathematician, mainly in Biology, for many years. He is developing new methods of digital printmaking, using the JAVA programming language.
He studied digital art at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London, and fine art printmaking and art history at the Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
