“Over the Fence”

Study for Over the Fence..jpg

“Over the Fence”, acrylic on 300.gsm. paper, 50cm. x  70cm. A break from Abstraction with a return to Landscape.  Many “en plein air’ studies eventually led to this painting. It is a subject that I have been returning to unsuccessfully until now.  I had always looked at the wider picture, when all along my only intent was to express the sensation of entangled undergrowth. What lies beyond remains a mystery.

David is a contemporary artist using many types of media to create abstract artwork. Born in 1947 in North Wales, he migrated to Australia in 1970 with his wife and children. David has spent most of his working life in the electrical trades. He was lucky enough to be accepted as a full time, mature age student (aged 63) at Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW. graduating after four years of study with a Bachelors Degree of Visual Art (Honours). David and his wife, now great-grandparents, live in the Northern Rivers region of NSW. where David paints in his studio most days. His abstract works are inspired by memory; not so much to depict specific events but rather, a series of emotional situations infused by present moments of recollection. David regards himself as a mature age, emerging artist.
