About

Blocked by David Watkins, 2017, Ink, gouache and pencil on paper, 33 9/10 × 26 2/5 in; 86 × 67 cm This is one of David’s unique and delicate drawings, shown in Projects at the London Art Fair in 2017, alongside a sculptural installation. It is framed and glazed. David attempts to record within his work, amorphous and intangible ‘space’, drawing parallels between the internet systems that seek to take formal qualities of abstraction – line, shape and colour – and give them a shake, scattering and stretching connections and references which give the resulting works a sense of tension and movement. Despite the profound subject matter, these works are also playful. The viewer is invited, in ‘reading’ the pictures, to inhabit the actions that are involved in their making – dripping, pouring, squishing, stretching, suggestive of a more organic nature. The geometric shapes that cascade across the paintings and drawings interrupt the network and connections, almost like pinball machines which refract the lines elsewhere to form new connections. David graduated from University of Wolverhampton in 1997 in Fine Art, painting with sculpture and spent six months on a study exchange program at the University of Buffalo, New York. He has exhibited widely since then, including in the Project Space at the London Art Fair 2017
