David Beschi F.R.A.S.


ARTIST STATEMENT 

"A thought turns into a dot. A dot turns into a line. A line turns into a painting… That’s all I know about art. HELP!!! 

This latest collection of my ‘stuff’, I find rather difficult to explain. In fact, it may not even need an explanation. It just sits there in frames... as we all do, one way or another. This body of work speaks of both past memories and present musings. The inspiration for most works came from my sketchbooks – all 56 of them to date! Plus jottings on restaurant napkins, envelopes, backs of bills and scraps of paper that I had doodled or drawn on over the years. As a result, this collection is not only of now, but also of the past, found in the memories and drawings from Morocco, London, Paris and many other places I have journeyed. The work itself is uncannily becoming more and more obscure, presenting itself as a fight with light and atmosphere as much as with the subject matter. I find painting obscurity difficult, yet painting reality seems unnecessary to me – it already exists! I realise that the point when you put brush to paper matters. But the point you decide to pick it up, matters even more."
