David Stanley is a painter, making work

usually in acrylic.  He repeatedly builds

and effaces the surface in his search for

 the essence of his paintings

My works are paintings before they are

pictures and sometimes they are not

pictures at all. Their beginnings lie in the

visual world and my reactions to it but,

once I begin, the work becomes more

about an emotional response than

anything pictorial.

There is a world of difference between

paintings and images.
