David J Porter
David has successfully divided his career as a freelance designer and as a professional artist.
His main concentration is contemporary landscape, achieving a semi-abstract - part representational composition. Inspiration comes from his many walks in the country and visits abroad which he sketches often in charcoal and acrylic, then re-assess the subject in the studio. By applying blocks of vivid colour in such a way as to ‘suggest’ parts of the landscape he stimulates the onlooker’s
imagination to interpret the landscape in a different way.
He professes not to maintain a single style but prefers ‘chance’ to dictate the path to be taken.
Recently David explored the figure in mundane situations adding a contemporary look.
David is continually moving boundaries in his work by keeping the process in a state of flux.
To date he has exhibited successfully in solo and group exhibitions in numerous galleries also achieving recognition in:Laings Regional Finalist./Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Finalist./Also exhibited at the Affordable Art Fair Battersea/ Chelsea Art Fair and the Edinburgh Art Fair.
Work in private collections throughout United Kingdom, Europe and Australia.
