A new series of prints made using slices of bread sourced from various bakers and bakeries operating in and around the Glasgow area. David aims to document and promote the current rise of real bread baking throughout Glasgow and beyond, showcasing the varied crumb structures of different loaves, fascinated by the art of bread-baking and its unpredictable nature.
Supporting Scotland The Bread’s aims to make a healthy impact on the Scottish food system through the production of nutritious and delicious flour and spreading the baking skills needed to bring good real bread to the places where it will have most effect, David will be donating to them £5 from each print sale.
Fruit & Veg, Ongoing.
Since the first lockdown, during a time in which stockpiling, long queues at supermarkets and food supply issues swiftly became new norms, David has been creating an ongoing series of paintings as a tribute to fruit and vegetables of all shapes and sizes as a means to support those suffering from food poverty during the current crisis.
£5 of every sale will be donated to Locavore’s Good Food Fund which Locavore uses to buy fruit and veg at cost price and pass it on to their partner organisations who run emergency food provision for those living in poverty.
