Artist Declaration

David Abse is a painter, an illustrator and a print-maker.David Abse's work covers a wide range of styles and subject matter: abstract paintings, oil paintings, watercolours, landscapes, portraits, animal drawings and more. He experiments, to change and to grow, and feels no need to apologise for it.

"I have been drawing as long as I can remember. My grandfather was a shop-steward for years in the Pilkingtons' glassworks in St Helens, but after he retired he went to art school every day for 30 years. He died over 20 years ago, aged 99, still a communist, determined not to get a telegram from the queen. He was and is my inspiration. My work explores issues of identity, personality and role-playing. I use a variety and mix of media and styles, to achieve a range of images aimed at challenging preconceptions."
