Gazelle - Dan David
Hand carved from Forest of Dean sandstone. 290mm x 80mm x 110mm
Dan David is an award winning stone carver based in Norwich. He trained at Bath and qualified in 1995.
His work is informed by an abiding interest in developing new languages in stone carving:demonstrating curiosity and humour and exploring the relationship between traditional techniques and contemporary visual culture.
This experimental approach, investigating the interplay between materiality, concept and scale, marks a shift in conventional practices with stone, as he playfully scrutinises the tension between the images he chooses to represent – temporary symbols of their time – and the permanence of the material and its historic associations.
