David Stuart Sutherland
artist statement 2020
David Sutherland works with painting, photography and sound.
Painting about painting is one way to consider the work which aims to extend the artist's own language.
The practice aims to explore the medium of painting as both subject and object. The work explores gestural abstraction and composition ‘on the edge of geometry’
considering the inherent structures and materiality of the given medium.
Through making music, films and collaborative works his own art practice has taken on new ways of seeing.
Sutherland's work deals with both personal memory and chance procedures. He lives and works in Budapest.
