With 20 art awards and more than 50 solo exhibitions to his name, David Giles has indelibly established himself as an artist to watch. His history of exhibitions has stretched far beyond his base in Fremantle, Western Australia to reach Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Singapore, New York and Paris. Having begun painting after a dramatic near-death experience galvanised his resolve to pursue a career as an artist, his subsequent output has been prolific. David’s works have become known for their aesthetic and philosophical layers. What might seem like repetitive expressive mark-making always reveals a hidden pattern that stems from the artist’s preoccupation with the human psyche – an underpinning of beauty and order that must be deciphered.
