Focus on…David Ward

Date of event: 07/09/19 - 14/12/19
Artist: David Ward

Landscape photographer, teacher and writer David Ward launches his first photography exhibition in many years at Joe Cornish Galleries on Saturday 7 September.  The work David Ward will show is from his new photographic series ‘Overlooked’. David’s landscape photography is distinctive for its graphic simplicity and technical quality with a focus on poetic detail. The exhibition is a unique opportunity to view the current trends in David’s work and to purchase one of his prints.

‘Reality is fractal, with an infinite depth of complexity. The grand vista easily seizes our attention but we often let our eyes glance past the details from which that vista is constructed. These photographs seek to express beauty found in the mundane, the walked upon, the passed by, the overlooked.’

David Ward 2019

‘Focus on…’ at Joe Cornish Galleries is a programme of exhibitions showcasing the work of our resident Gallery photographers. It is designed to bring each photographer’s work into the spotlight by displaying their photography in greater depth over a 3 month period. Photographer talks and question and answer sessions form part of the Focus on… programme, these will be hosted by Joe Cornish when possible.

There will also be ‘artist in residence’ events giving visitors to the Galleries the opportunity to meet and talk to the photographers about their themes, methodology and technical expertise.

Everyone is welcome.
