David Sims


13 September - 22 October

David is a painter based in Cumbria.  Although always associated with gritty Northern landscapes, David’s first instinct was towards abstraction.  The great thing about a sixties art education was that it concentrated on the basics – drawing, life and anatomy, composition, technique, materials and an understanding and practice in a selection of craft.

This depth of study gave David a lifelong foundation that has been invaluable throughout a long career in design and now enables him to easily revisit abstraction.
