David Manley is an artist working across a variety of media including installation; painting; digital manipulation and photography. His concerns include place, time and memory and he is especially interested in the cumulative impact of serial imagery.
For COM he is proposing to show new paintings from a series that began in 2009 entitled ‘Conversation Pieces’. These recent paintings measuring 2.2 x 1.5 metres each explore a conversation between two groups of forms on either edge of the canvas…but the ‘chatter’ between them is starting to get in the way. Born in the West Country David has exhibited widely in the UK, Italy, Portugal, Sweden and Germany. His most recent exhibitions were ‘ ‘Epidemic’ closed at Nottingham’s Lakeside in February.
