David J Porter artwork for sale and artist biography
Based in Cheshire David has successfully divided his career as a freelance designer and as a professional artist. He is now a full time 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, then re-...assess the subject in the studio. Recalling his experience of the landscape he has witnessed, he begins to compose his painting. 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 abstracts the uneccessary from his paintings and moves shapes and colours around to create a pleasing balance.
David is continually moving boundaries in his work by keeping the process in a state of flux. His preferred medium is oil paint.
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 Fairand the Edinburgh Art Fair.
His work is in private collections throughout United Kingdom, Europe and Australia.
