David Alcock is the featured artist in this month’s exhibition at Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre.

“I’m very interested in collecting accidental and intentional marks which I manipulate and reuse in my paintings,” said David.

“I’m constantly looking for mistakes to happen, an uncontrolled drip, a poorly mixed colour, an unexpected event which can be quoted again later.”

Since completing his degree David has continued to develop his practice as a painter and now works from his studio at The Ropewalk alongside working in cultural learning with museums and galleries.

Noel Black said of the exhibition: “It’s fresh and it has given an extra dimension to the previous exhibitions, therefore extends the range of awareness.”

Abstract Paintings by David Alcock runs until Sunday, March 30.
