Harold David | Beauty and the Apocalypse

BY Helen Day | 29-Sep-2019
Beauty and the Apocalypse encapsulates the beauty in uncertain times via means of abstraction. Rather than escaping from uncertainty, the work emphasizes the fragile beauty found within uncertain moments. Each colour compliments the other sublimely as they sit on the edge of the unknown. (Think; current state of the planet) The paintings are drawn from my subconscious and are non objective. Our time here is not finite, and I choose beauty. Harold David 2019

Harold David has established himself as one of Australia’s leading celebrity portrait and fashion photographer’s, with an ability to create compositions that have been placed on many prominent magazine covers, his visceral images are enchanting and iconic.

In this new body of work Harold explores the medium of painting. David’s influence of photography can be seen in his composition style, offering a sensation that venture’s into his subconscious and ‘non-objective’ perspective, in expressionistic movements of colour. Through these abstractions, Harold explores the uncertainty and perennial quality of colour and form as a journey into the unknown.
