Solo Show by David Ferguson
The artist says: “The only CV is my artwork. I have never been into self gratification.
I was quite good at art when l was at school, After that, nothing, Until osteoarthritis set into all my joints. Art was the ideal essential therapy – starting with small paintings, and then advancing to larger works.
The painting boards I use are necessary because I am unable to paint onto soft flexible canvas, as my hands cannot handle it. I had large backing boards made up to stretch the canvas automatically, Using my own imagination and developing my own style I create colour rich paintings. The details in the paintings is restricted by the state of my hands, the amount of pain in them and the length of time I can spend sitting”
