Arts Derbyshire

Artist profile

David Crouch

My art is bound into my feelings for what I make-and what makes that making happen -; familiar and vividly new locations and encounters with the model: life, each of these broad arenas practiced, expressed in many different media and their combinations: drawings on varied paper, types of pastels, gouache, oil mainly on canvas – and any mix of these. Over nearly forty years I have developed an increasingly diverse way of painting and drawing; increasingly from seeking a fathomless ‘correct’ way of practice to expression of feeling of the encounter; of something come upon, as it were, unexpected- a term of Peter Lanyon, whose work I admire and continue to learn from, that resonates with me.
