Exhibition Title : “Werewolf in a Jet Pack”
At Huyton Gallery we present David’s first solo exhibition, his work has previously been exhibited throughout Merseyside and the UK. He likes to move between different mediums and processes, mainly through digital imaging, traditional printmaking and papermaking.
The main subject of his work is focused on visual culture. We all have access to images everywhere, David uses this access as a source of inspiration, whether it be digital or from his collection of resource images and photographs.
These visual references can become ideas for artworks which present narratives that depict a past, present and conjured up events constructed from the acquired imagery, artefacts, sketches, graphics and personal photographs brought together to create a manipulated and imagined world.
The images or elements act as pictorial or vague representations with symbolic meaning to develop and illustrate the narrative. Through constant additions and layering his digital prints evolve from the construction and organisation of elements utilising digital techniques that are sometimes akin to effects that he uses in traditional printmaking.
