    "My inspiration to make this piece came from the Ecstasy pill identifier charts made by the government’s drug awareness campaign back in the 1990s. The charts would show the many different colours and logos on ecstasy pills. My main challenge to make this piece was trying to source coloured stones to match the brightly coloured pills. Luckily I have a great stone supplier in Rajasthan in India who sourced many of the stones in the piece. There are 25 different types of stone from around the world, including sandstone from Rajasthan, soap stone from Afghanistan, Portland limestone, Nabresina limestone, Carrara marble from Italy." - Dan David

ARTIST STORY

Dan David

Dan's sculptural work is informed by an abiding interest in developing new languages in stone carving: demonstrating curiosity and humour and exploring the relationship between traditional techniques and contemporary visual culture. Dan's experimental approach to sculpture investigates the interplay between materiality, concept and scale. Dan says of his work: "All my work is heavily influenced by my memories that hark back to the prime of my life. Being out on my BMX, my first pair of Adidas, the poll tax riots, raving…Setting these memories in stone are a way of making the impermanent, permanent."

A NOTE FROM US

WHAT WE LOVE

We love how Dan is dedicated to developing a new sculptural language, reimagining the relationships between traditional techniques and contemporary visual culture. Embracing the unconventional, Dan plays with the permanence of his sculpting materials and the temporary nature of the subjects he chooses to represent. Dan embraces the unconventional and transforms the historical connotations of both the subject and material of his art, playing with ideas of permanence.
