Overview

David Abbott uses paint, collage and drawing to explore the intersection of the natural world and human activity within the landscape. His deep landscapes evoke a spirit place where the land, natural world, present moment, history, folk and personal memory all corral together. The inputs may be mundane or transcendent, but the created moment is a quiet, focused expansion of reality out of which all the work gets made. David is interested in folk song and lore, how it locates and defines people inside a landscape, and centres them – through the evocations of folk memory – when outside it.

David studied art at James Madison University in Virginia, USA, and received a Masters Degree in Printmaking at the University of the West of England, Bristol. He lives and works in Bristol, UK.
