Dave Gibbons is a visual artist who works predominately between photography and collage to seek narratives and explore ideas around emotional attachments to found ephemera and objects.

Photographic projects, sometimes spanning over a longer duration serve to explore the collecting of found objects, either as photographs taken in situ, or objects to be photographed within a studio context. These are presented as either single items or as sequences which focus on recurring themes such as memory, nostalgia, life and death.

Collage works sway between tight digital photomontages, which draw inspiration from instructional diagrams to frame seeming disparate images an extensive archive, to papier collé ‘sketches’ that explore the colour and form of everyday detritus.
