Dave Gibbons is a visual artist who works predominately between photography and collage to seek narratives and explore ideas around emotional attachments to ephemera and objects. Reoccurring themes such as memory, nostalgia, life and death are present throughout. Photographic projects offer subjects centrally to the cameras frame, there is a suggestion of of play, or perhaps a sense of theatre which seems to emanate through the work. Collage works sway between tight digital photo montage,¬† drawing inspiration from instructional diagrams to harness disparate images from his extensive archive, to papier coll√© ‘sketches’ that explore the colour and form of everyday detritus.
