An exhibition by David Cass, The Scottish Gallery


An exhibition of 200+ found-object based artworks. Text by Tommy Zyw: Years of Dust and Dry is David Cass' largest exhibition to date and presents with an authoritative voice the different loci of his creative output: Paris, Piedmont, Liguria, Brussels and the Borders are captured with the assurance of an artist who understands the resonance of time and place. His images are fleeting glimpses, snapshots of memory, moments of reflection which ask the viewer to pause, appealing to our interior, our own deep memories, if only for a moment. His seascapes and city scenes speak of loss and decay as well as beauty and the artist's observations are a journey into his past as well as the history of the surfaces he paints on; images of eloquence which can resonate with our own sensual histories. His distinctive tonality, assured mark making and clarity of aesthetic vision identify him as one of the finest and most exciting artists to emerge from Scotland in recent years.
