David Cass

Currently on show at The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh is 'Years of Dust and Dry',  a solo exhibition by David Cass.

A recent graduate of Edinburgh College of Art, David has had a flying start to his career: a recipient of the RSA John Kinross travelling scholarship to Florence, Cass already has six paintings in the RSA collection.

As Guy Peploe of The Scottish Gallery explains...

“David Cass has an innate understanding of matière; a sensitivity to material, it’s texture, tone, pigment, weight and beyond this its context, history and emotional resonance. He works with found objects and by an act of appropriation and minimal intervention – perhaps merely turning the front of a drawer through ninety degrees – he creates works of art with quiet authority."

His exhibition at The Scottish Gallery runs until Saturday 29th June 2013. Highly recommended.
