David Antonides

 

The work David Antonides evolves the experience and memory of urban environments, where intersections evoke the paradoxes that emerge out of the landscape. Within this urban matrix, people are active living objects, leaving remnant flows within the chasms created by a cold and inorganic architecture. Nature and light in this context are inspirational phenomena, overarching and lurking in the background, hidden from view yet ubiquitous. A collective unity, these works embody a spiritual and instinctive optimism. This interest in flow, optimism, is reflected in Antonides use of watercolour and his large format cityscapes, intermediating the tangible and emotional spirit of urban behaviour.
