More about David's paintings...

Added on by David Caines.

David's figurative paintings show us real people, but don't show us the real world. It's a carefully rearranged world of anxious encounters and deviant ritual aiming to invoke feelings of foreboding and melancholy in us.

The pictures sit outside of a recognisable time-frame and often represent unlikely groups of curious and seemingly disparate characters (a shaman, a figure wrapped in polythene, masked children, contortionists). Their intentions are ambiguous. Are they the welcoming committee or the death squad? Entertainers or sorcerers? It is left up to us to conjure the narrative.

Other pictures suggest a fundamentally ridiculous relationship between humans and simple machinery (a woman who seems to have coalesced with her sewing machine, a headless man being led around by a wheelbarrow).

"I heard someone describe David's work as poignant and I think that’s true… without wanting to get too deep, it seems like a comment on the human condition, that in the end we’re all alone.” Simone Pereira Hind, critic

Salon16 event announcement!

Added on by David Caines.

I am happy and excited to announce that we will be hosting an exclusive art event this spring in North London. In May we will transform our Hackney home and studio into an art gallery for a limited period and open it to the public. Salon16 will showcase David's paintings and also sculpture, photography and performances by his friends and collaborators. This will be a unique opportunity to view and buy art directly from the artists – as well as a great way to develop the burgeoning N16 art scene. Please get in touch if you are interested in being involved. More info in the form of blogs and emails to follow -  meanwhile make a note in your diary! salon16 logo
