“Night Paintings’’ by David West

Monday 24th February – Thursday 3rd April 2014

 

A collection of work by Dublin based artist David West.

‘Night Paintings’ is an exhibition comprising of paintings from a larger body of work that has occupied David for the past 4 years-landscape-based works which are figurative in nature, mainly urban in subject, and primarily concerned with relationships between place, light and mood. David describes his work as giving a poetic voice to everyday, mundane places and spaces - often seen through the half-light of dawn and dusk or the neon glow of streetlamps. These atmospheric works are unapologetically romantic and I consider them successful when they connect with the viewer on an emotional rather than an intellectual level.

Dave West was born and raised in South Wales and is now settled in Balbriggan, North County Dublin. He studied at the Carmarthenshire College of Art & Design and recently completed a degree in Art History with the Open University. This is his 11th Solo Show and he has exhibited with the RHA, RUA, RWA, Royal Society of Oil Painters, Royal Society of Marine Artists, The New English Art Club, The Royal Society of British Artists, Eígse and the UK Pastel Society, at which he won this year's Schminke Award.
