Dave Gibbons is a visual artist who works predominately between photography and collage to create narratives that explore ideas around the emotional attachment to everyday ephemera and objects. Reoccurring themes such as memory, nostalgia, life and death are present throughout. Photographic projects offer subjects which often sit central to the cameras frame, there is a suggestion of of play, or perhaps a sense of theatre which seems to eminate through the work. Collage works sway between tight digital work,¬† 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.
