Welcome to Evolver



3 June - 1 July

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.
