David’s work mixes painting techniques and media, which along with his conceptual and physical motifs, hint at alternate ways of seeing.

Repetitive line work, features heavily in his work, which he uses to abstractly plot narratives, and convey essential character study information.

He predominantly chooses found objects to paint on, such as vintage car bonnets, or old metal objects with typography and defects, that then become woven into his work.

The past lives of these items, form an important element of his work, as well as reflecting his interest in the passage of time, which has, and remains, a constant theme of his work.

He lives and works in Taranaki on New Zealand’s North Island.
