David Spurrier


David Spurrier’s ideas for paintings and prints come from landscape and the materials that make up a landscape: rock, stone, wood etc combined with maps and aerial photography. Much of the work is abstract in form using memory or fragments of memory and emotional response to the landscape exploring and simplifying shape, colour and texture.

Achieving abstract images is the most satisfying - freely improvising the spontaneous effects that emerge and creating layers of paint and inks without losing the sense of place and the impact of the original subject.
