DAVID HARRISON: REMAKE

REMODEL

“David Harrison’s paintings, drawings and sculptures draw on a rich vocabulary of myth,

history and symbol to present an acutely observed, emphatically contemporary world

where the natural and supernatural go hand in hand. For his forthcoming solo exhibition

at Churchgate Gallery, the artist will show wall-based works alongside previously

unseen sculptures. Shaped from cheap, prosaic and recycled materials such as

cardboard offcuts, Harrison’s sculptures present us with representatives of the animal

kingdom, such as a flock of birds, along with symbolic figures from the past, from myth,

or from fiction. Embodying our throw-away society and its effects upon our wider

environment, these sculptures make explicit the paramount important of nature to the

artist. His dexterity with such materials, meanwhile, allows each object, despite its

humble origins, to possess an alarming, talismanic potency, and an iconic simplicity.”

Churchgate Gallery, High Street, PORLOCK, TA24 8TP. Monday -

Saturday 10.30am - 5.30pm.
