    This is the second time David has been featured on 'For Example', we just couldn't resist showing his more recent drawings. Still love them!David Harker is an artist based in London. In 2010 he was awarded a Residency by the Fundacion Valparaiso in Mojacar, Almeria, Spain and in 2009 he participated in a Residency at The Collection Studio, Lincoln, Lincolnshire supported by a Arts Council ‘Grants for the Arts’ Award. In 2007 he was awarded a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant . He was shortlisted for the Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2004 and from 2001-2002 was a resident Artist at the Florence Trust Studios in London. As well as exhibiting across the U.K. he has been in group shows in Europe, the U.S.A. and Australia. He is currently Artist in Residence at the Kentish Town Health Centre in Kentish Town, London.

    This series of landscape drawings are in part inspired by 19th century Japanese graphic art and by contemporary Chinese printmaking. Each drawing creates a specific mood using the interplay between figurative outlines and the abstract shapes, which often take on the appearance of textile patterns. The mark-making also resembles the fine texture of lines and dots that feature in etchings or lithographs, giving the effect of a negative or reversed image. The use of monochrome emphasises the structure which underpins each image as well as a sense of distance and proximity.

    In contrast some of the drawings such as Oak (2011) depict landscape imagery in less pictorial and less traditional formats. These images emphasise shape and texture while retaining a sense of space, depth and mass. They simultaneously appear as a floating textural fragment revealing a concurrent sense of disjointedness and coherence. However these are images which are self contained, delineated by their own boundaries but free from the compositional frame.
