Elected to the London Group in 2013, David Wiseman’s career spans 35 years after graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1975. Extensively exhibited, Wiseman has featured in many important painting prize exhibitions including New Contemporaries, The John Moores Painting Prize, The Hayward Gallery Annual, R.A. Summer Exhibition, The Discerning Eye and the London Group Open.

He has had solo shows at the Serpentine Gallery, London; Peterborough City Museum, Peterborough; and exhibited in curated exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, Oxford; Kettle’s Yard Gallery, Cambridge; and the Camden Arts Centre, London. Wiseman’s work is held in many private, corporate and public collections including the Arts Council Collection, Prudential, The Bank of England, London Borough of Hammersmith, The Open University, Museo Municipal Ourense, Spain, Peterborough City Museum, St Barts and the London N.H.S. Trust.

David has also completed eight major public art works including large scale murals at Charing Cross, Frimley Park, Royal London and Ealing Hospitals. He was recently elected member of the National Acrylic Painters Association winning the Presidents Prize and Adrian Henri Memorial Prize in their exhibitions in St Ives and Birkenhead. The fluidity with which David Wiseman applies materials to the canvas creates an otherworldly atmosphere to real world locations. Provoking us to stop and experience the river running over stones and feel the gentle breeze through the leaves, Wiseman’s coloured washes also allude to something more than the physical, temporal world.

 

Framed by saturated semi abstract shapes and patterns, the natural landscape of Devon and the coast, as well as his local Ealing parklands, are transformed into elemental, symbolic forms. There is an ancient presence in his contemporary scenes absorbing the viewer into the landscape.
