Dave Nelson artists in Saint Albans art gallery
My work is influenced by the landscapes around me, by the many places and houses I have lived in over the years. I work with different media – paint, photography, digital and often combine different images - parts of paintings, photographs or digital images - and juxtapose these with one another to change the original image, yet retain a recognizable element of it. By exploring the relationship between the reality of a place or object and the imagined memory of it, quite plain images are transformed into something “rich and strange”. Drawing, using layers, different textures and colors is also a major element in my work.
