David constructs his vast steel sculptures by hand. His forms are angular, curvaceous, faceted into segments and twisted into gravity defying whorls, angles and spires. His surfaces are seconded to create reflections, shadows and architectural frames for the landscape in which they sit, visitors to and commentators on the age-old theme of the link between us and our universe.
Many of David’s sculptures have rusted finishes, the orange hues of their exteriors contrasting with the greens and blue of nature. Another theme to his oeuvre is the architectural landscape with its angular forms, towering nature and metallic patina, as contrasted with the natural world.
David constantly considers his work in relation to the environment. “My heart lies squarely in the landscape and this is my playground,” he explains.
This connection is reflected in the scenic locations of shows he chooses to exhibit in and has led to most of his commissioned pieces being perched on rolling hills, nestled into gardens and enveloped by natural beaut.y
