David Tress 2017

11th Oct 2017 - 3rd Nov 2017

Tress is an emotional painter, depicting states of mind as much as specific places, recalled not necessarily in tranquility. His images are often seared and scraped, the thick paper scored through and patched over and reworked, looking as though violence has been visited upon them in the artist’s determination to express his understanding of their significance and meaning.
