David De Silva
My work and how it looks is governed solely by what excites me at the moment. There's no plan or theme, even if a retrospective overview might show threads or recurring areas of interest. Sometimes I'll make a set of maybe three or four linked pieces, but I'd rather end it there and move on to something new than just repeat myself.
I like to work in oils, acrylic, mixed media and whatever is to hand. Much of it is very labour intensive. Sometimes better work can come out of a conscious decision to just work with stuff that's immediately around you. To limit and improvise. In that way you get surprises - and surprises are good (usually)..
To search for and be always receptive to new ideas, new excitements, is an inherent part of my make-up and the resultant diversity of imagery is what keeps me doing it. I work on the premise that my best piece of work is the one I've yet to do.
