David was born on the West Coast of Tasmania in Queenstown in 1958 and returned in 2015 from travelling Australia with his unique spiritual pastel drawings.
David’s work includes ceramics, metal sculptures, and large ‘flame drawings’. He applies the same unique, industrial process across all disciplines. Chemical, acid etching, rain water as a resist, flame drawing, marks with machines, and coloured with iron oxide and copper sulphate.
David’s large, scarred, raw and intense panels show a truth in landscape and depict a ‘real’ view of his home town and its surrounds—'A West Coaster's point of view'. Revealed in these large works is a mysterious, unique beauty and resilience only an artist born into it could portray.
