David Gardner



David Gardner’s pictures are representational pivoting on abstraction; they use line, form and colour as the core language and deal with themes of presence, absence, memory and trace.

The work is dreaming of a space that can be at once all spaces; a simultaneous present, everything at the same time, a palimpsest of imagery that borrows from ancient art history forged with contemporary and personal references.

David previously graduated from Central Saint Martins with a BA in fashion design and recently from the Royal Drawing School's MA Drawing Year in 2019. David is originally from Newcastle.
