ARTIST STATEMENT

David Starley is an archaeologist turned artist, based at The Bingley Gallery, who aims to evoke an emotional response to our environment through his knife-painted oils. Subjects include landscapes of Yorkshire with trees often the focus of his work. By portraying the character of individual specimens, or groups in woodland, the viewer is led to a greater appreciation of these living structures - changeless yet changing, strong yet vulnerable; never to be taken for granted.
