Dave Nelson’s paintings are layered with material. With inspection it is possible to see how every mark is made, every piece assembled. Natural and organic overlaying of structure and form – marks, scrapings, symbols, colour and collage building on the panels.

Dave Nelson has been practising as an artist since 2013 and became an elected Arts Fellow at the Digswell Arts Trust in 2016. He has exhibited in numerous regional exhibitions and appeared on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year in 2017. He will start on the Turps Banana Studio programme in 2021.
