A light touch: new paintings by Dai David
The new work of Dai David will be exhibited for the month of July at the White Lion Street Gallery in Tenby. Being both a trained and active musician and a well-established artist, Dai uses the disciplines of one profession to influence the expressive skills of the other. Common ground is found in the principles of composition, tone, colour and theme and often Dai paints whilst listening to music providing an even more direct inspiration.
His oil paintings are predominantly of people – young men posing on the beach, little girls playing the piano, family groups in deckchairs, young children playing in the sea and surfers, divers and rock poolers with back grounds as diverse as Newquay, Venice, Gower, Cornwall, Sydney, Aberystwyth and Tenby. Regardless of obvious subject matter, the real subject is the light...sparkling and shimmering on water, backlighting silhouettes, making shadows, highlighting a face or figure, shining through material. Dawn light, evenings and full sun are caught in painterly lyrical impressionism. Dai says he tries to “imbue my paintings with a song-like quality: a flowing, rhythmic expression filled with colour harmony...”
Having exhibited and sold his work in galleries throughout the UK, Dai has also shown at prestigious Art Fairs. This is his second exhibition at the White Lion Street Gallery where partner John Faulkner comments, “We are very pleased to have Dai’s paintings here. He catches a mood or a moment very skilfully but with a light touch. Nothing is overworked and the overall feeling is joyous and delightful. We think our visitors will enjoy the work as much as we do.”
