Using his very own techniques of modelling in steelmesh and incorporating photography the outcome for these artworks is stunning:

A New Art Form

These sculptures are a quite different art form/medium altogether which David has invented and pioneered - they epitomise sculptural economy and visual succinctness. David's unique art-form for portraiture is bold and completely convincing, achieving the translation beautifully from his steel-mesh sculptures.

Most of these sculptures are made of stainless steel, some are made in phosphor bronze or brass.

These two-dimensional sculptures are editioned as a limited series - usually a maximum of nine of each artwork plus artist proofs. All sculptures are numbered, signed and dated on the back.

These flat steel panel sculptures can be painted in a range of different metal colours to suit either the artwork itself or its intended purpose and location. Some sculptures can be be shaped again into concave or convex (3D) for a suspended, wall-mounted or free-standing artwork.

Custom-made portraits in nearly every size are possible as a commissioned individual artwork - by providing a snapshot photograph (a passport image or similar) - enquire about sizes and prices by email.

With strategic lighting I create dynamic compositions between three-dimensional form and its projected shadow - an optical fusion of two and three dimensions articulating light line and form.
