An Exhibition of Drawings and Prints


The work in this exhibition represents an aspect of artist David Harker’s practice that explores drawing as a vocabulary.

His drawings of trees are from a 2013 onwards series of work influenced by the marks found in woodblock prints, screenprints and etching, particularly from contemporary China and nineteenth-century Japan.

More recent work shows rural and urban landscapes. The notion of landscape is represented through a variety of subjects, from scrubland and suburban environments to depictions of ancient ruins. The drawings are presented as fragments, rather than in the format of the traditionally framed landscape.

The representations of landscape recall places once visited and experienced, but also refer to the relationship between the built and natural environment.

David Harker’s landscape drawings have influenced the poet Tamar Yoseloff to write a new sequence of poems; these are presented with a selection of the drawings in a book titled Nowheres
