David Carr art statement
I like to create pictures where the viewer can lose themselves in an imagined world amongst colourful patterns, shapes and lines. My pictures are about feelings and emotion but not about me. My latest work is a series of paintings where I have left the choice of colour for other people to decide and have no idea of the shapes and lines i will draw until they have chosen those colours. I then think about, or even dream, a picture using these colours, and sketch anything that comes to mind until i have enough ideas to draw out the final piece.
David Carr trained as an artist and was awarded a top scholarship to Repton school in Derbyshire, and has painted for over thirty years.
