Artissima Prize 2017:

I am happy to announce that I have been awarded the Irinox Disegni / Drawing Prize at Artissima , Turin

Motivation of the jury: “We believe that out of a very strong group of artists David’s work stands out as speaking to issues at the forefront of Drawing today. The way in which he uses the medium to play with representation both in terms of the handmade and the digital, as well as his deep investment in art historical references is exemplary within a proliferation of work in this area. His work gives poignant testament to our contemporary condition in which our desire for intimacy and human contact is filtered through the solitude of the screen.” JURY Claire Gilman, curator, The Drawing Center, New York Katharine Stout, deputy director, @icalondon London Irina Zucca Alessandrelli, curator, Ramo Collection, Milano
