BIO: David McDowell


David McDowell was born in Northern Ireland, 1986. In 2008 he graduated from the University of Ulster with a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine and Applied Art. His works are part of both public and private collections in Northern Ireland. McDowell's practice takes the form of figurative oil painting with particular focus on light, composition and colour. Conceptually he plays on the notion of taking a private moment and making it public, where the viewer becomes the voyeur. His latest work explores the qualities cinematic imagery can bring to a painting. McDowell is influenced by both historic and contemporary figurative painting with particular interest in the works of Pierre Bonnard, David Kassan, Eric Fischl and Damien Loeb.
