David H Stacey
Acclaimed artist, David Stacey, is renowned for his seductive representation of the natural world. Born in Sydney in 1961, David moved to North Queensland during the eighties where he currently resides. David’s unique and distinctive style of interpreting the landscape has been instrumental in showcasing the beauty and diversity of this region.
Inspired by the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, he developed a passion for wildlife and the Australian landscape. A passion that has become a lifelong pursuit; to further the understanding and exploration of nature through art.
His deep connection to the natural world is clearly visible in his contemporary interpretation and observations. David has a definitive ability to capture the essence of the living landscape in all its nuances. Often revisiting specific places at different times, giving these brief moments, continued existence.
David spent 2 years on Dunk Island and South Mission Beach in the early 90’s which was a pivotal moment in his career. A landscape that was new and fresh in ideas, the coastal environment provided much interest where his favorite pastime was beach combing to collect objects amongst the tidal zone. Strangely enough, it took many years after before the ideas found their way on to canvas. Still to this day, he returns to the coast, finding a deeper knowledge of the ebb and flow of this beautiful landscape.
Primarily considered as a painter, his pen and ink works appear in various publications such as scientific journals and university texts. David has had over twenty successful solo exhibitions in Australia and Japan and his work is represented in private collections throughout the world. He is currently illustrating and writing a book. David is an artist of genuine repute, his name is synonymous with the genre of fine art; the work speaks for itself.
