Through installation, sculpture, photography and papiers découpés, David Oliver shares a practice embedded in personal explorations and lived experiences, rooted in the evolving enquiry: does time exist without an experience of it? It withholds, but it also intervenes to tell the real story of an artist who is not done repatriating joy and beauty from the peril within.
Sunlight travels across the exhibition space, like a tide, highlighting motifs of sash windows with curtains, interior spaces and pathways that recur throughout this new body of work. At its core is an outline and shadow and a resemblance of what somebody has experienced before. In common is a shared interest in a characteristic event, an enduring sensation, and a silent spatial contemplation of parallel forms.
These journeys through domestic motifs make principals of architecture and design accessible, using aspects of contemporary life as a platform for deeper conversations and learning.
