The paintings in this exhibition come from two periods in my career as an artist, but common to both, is a sense of ambiguity and openness to interpretation.

The recent watercolours are from a series inspired by a visit to Coney Island, New York. Visiting it in the winter, deserted and snow covered, lent it a mysterious and magical quality and the empty rides and carousels became, in my imagination, scaffolding into which I could place figures from recent history and ancient myth. Coney Island became a site for lucid dreaming.

Some works, from the 1980s and 90s teem with household vessels – cups, jugs, and teapots; decorative souvenirs formed from the muddle of everyday life, whilst others refer to specific places, such as a transformed Trafalgar Square or a   Polish Bus Shelter, based on a collage made during the Polish Solidarity Campaign of the 1980s

the Exhibition coincides with a talk by David on his work and influences (including The Chicago Hairy Who and English Surrealism), to be held in the Learning Room, Weston Museum, Burlington Street, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1PR (5/12/17: 8-9.30)
