Dave has been called an interventionist, but not by himself. He is a firm believer that most artists dont know what their art really means.
Dave arrived from the West in 2001 after a varied patchwork of years, to study sculpture at COFA. Working with metal, concrete and other sundry things that fired his imagination he went on to cast his own car from ferro cement. Subsequently winning the Whites Wires sculpture prize he was provided with some more materials useful in the production of masonry artworks.
This led to the production of some other large works which ended up in exhibitions such as the McClelland sculpture survey, Montalto sculpture prize, Sculpture in the Vines as well as Various wineries in NSW and Victoria.
There was a momentary lapse of reason ( which lasted four odd years), where Dave relocated to Victoria and after leaving a few car sized calling cards around the Gippsland region, relocated to Sydney to enjoy warm weather again.
Since back he has worked making sets and props, along with some smaller commissions.
Here are some for your considerarion. Thanks for coming! Enjoy yourself.
