David Beattie - Llandygwydd, Cardigan 01239 682649 www.original-etchings.co.uk
Established as original printmaker in the field of Etchings for over 30 years. David works in various other media..painting, pen and ink, sculpting in metal and ceramics.
It is hard to pin David down to one or even a few favoured subjects.
Landscapes..People...Birds..(especially his own flock of chickens and resident cockerel ), Livestock ....and more recently ....depictions of the Hare and their encounters... all fall under his close scrutiny and attention to detail.
If one had to find a common element amongst this array of subjects, it would have to be the desire to present them to the viewer in painstaking meticulous and at times awesome detail.
Even his sculptures, be them in welded metal or ceramics, share the quality of his etchings. Pieces that may be considered finished at very early stages are worked and reworked to “almost” David’s satisfaction.
All of David’s works have their own story of a personal encounter of some sort..if you have time to spare..he might tell you about them.
