moving parts

April 27, 2023

David Neale’s Colour Fold series of painted metal on canvas remind me of mountainscapes, icebergs and handfulls of sea glass. They’re simple, crudely made, and so very lovely. I love his chalky colour combinations and the texture in the metal. There’s a feeling of rough cut gemstones to the work, which given Neale’s life long commitment to goldsmithery and jewellery design makes sense. It’s always so interesting to see how an artist manifests from one medium to another and these artworks are similar to his jewellery in that they have a warm, organic and tactile feel, but the overall impression is decidedly different. How exciting.
