David Slack


David Slack doesn’t remember a time when he didn’t consider himself a painter. Self-taught and working in oil and oil pastel, he has received training in ceramics and printmaking, silversmithing and stained glass. But for the last 30 years, it is to the wuthering call of paint on canvas he has repeatedly returned.


David has exhibited and sold his work in galleries in London and on the south coast In Rye, Hastings and the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne.


“My paintings make flesh boldly comic but shadowy evocations of warmly remembered childhood icons and plants them down firmly in emotional landscapes drawn from fragments of art history. The paintings pivot on the idea of clashing and harmonising opposites - of contrast, in subject of course, but also in light and dark, happiness and sadness, past and future. There is a dreamlike quality to my work - we know these characters well, but they are not quite how we are used to seeing them. A bit too earthy perhaps - sometimes seemingly in peril.

In my painting process, I often work an iconic character into something solid, and then plant it firmly inside a painting, in effect putting it back into a different realm of art. The painting is not the destination, it is the effect the painting has, and because for me, humour is the great unifier, not just of people, but of ideas, a smile will do just fine.“
