Weekes, David

Painting and drawing have been compulsive activities for me since I was a child. I enjoy analysing the world around me, and then expressing my interpretations in a manner that is intended to convey both boldness and clarity. From the first stab of a loaded brush on canvas, or the first sweep of charcoal or graphite across paper, I begin to connect with the object or person in front of me. I work from observation and my subject matter is broad. Landscape, portrait, still life: each genre presents an opportunity for me to reach a deeper understanding of my subject and reveal a truth about it that I hope an audience can connect with.
