Crystal City 2016 gouache on paper 12 parts

David Austen is a painter, sculptor, printmaker and filmmaker. Whatever the medium the elements of his work come together as if part of a strange but wonderful story that reveals a dark, yet endearing vision of the world. Crystal City is a new series of gouaches on handmade paper that reflect on inner and outer worlds, the fragile spaces between; travelling through a broken city of coloured glass, that evokes the literature of J. G. Ballard and Paul Scheerbart’s ‘The Gray Cloth’.
