Artist and Educator

David Swales is an artist living and working in York, UK.  His work variously concerns the cognitive and emotional reaction of the viewer in response to film, television and other audio-visual and print-based media.  The work often has an awkward relationship with its original source material as static, physical materials including pen, paint, photography and collage are pressed into action in response to inherently intangible, often time-based subject matter.  



David is also a teacher.  He leads a team of five practicing artists in the Art Department at Bootham School in York, UK.
