Quantum Mechaninks is a series of life-sized and realistically detailed drawings of mechanical objects, such as watches, motors and vintage tools.
Dave’s previous work has focused on upcycling and the re-use of waste materials, and Quantum Mechaninks expands on this by taking unwanted objects and using them as still-life subjects.
Drawn freehand, they explore primarily metallic forms and textures, whether polished or corroded, and aim to give value and interest to items that would otherwise be discarded, or forgotten in sheds, attics and the back of cupboard drawers.
Dave’s solo exhibition, New Lamps for Old, has been featured at the Art House and Dancing Man, and he has contributed to group exhibitions in the city, including Heart of Heritage and Summer of Buzzz, and jointly with Nina Fraser at Nest in Christchurch.
The exhibition runs until 15th January and is part of the BAS8 Southampton Fringe
