Dave Farnham – Artists Statement:

‘My arts practice challenges traditional approaches to mark making and sculpture. Previously, I have used pyrotechnic fuse wire to “draw” with, depicting light and dark within varying compositions. However, my more recent pieces represent an on-going body of work that aim to re-think life drawing and figurative sculpture.

I am driven by my passion for process and am constantly exploring new mediums and techniques when creating my works. By amalgamating art, medical technologies and new modes of printing, I am able to capture the internal make-up of the subject and replicate individual physiology. These works therefore play with the notion of traditional life drawing / sculpture in so much as, whilst they still explore the figurative nature of a subject/object, in capturing the unseen, internal physiology of the “sitter”, they are able to expose the ultimate fragility of the subject, thereby creating an allegorical representation of life and it’s delicate nature.’
