David is a printmaker, specialising in wood engraving, for his residency he aimed to produce a new body of work about the Snowdonia National Park, making drawings and developed studies on walks and in the studio.
David spent his time as resident reconnecting with his practice, exploring the landscape and working on some large scale oil pastel drawings to inform future wood engravings. I recommend checking out his instagram account to see lots of process photos and videos of his wood engravings.
While he was on his residency he was announced as a selected artist to exhibit as part of the 2022 exhibition program at Tarpey Gallery. He was also shortlisted for the prestigious Boodle Hatfield Printmaking Prize at Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair. His work was also selected by WCPF as part of the top prints to buy under £100, you can buy David's wood engravings straight from the artist through his website.
