about the art
David's Reclaimed Art showcases the multi-faceted quality and beauty of reclaimed materials. Using unwanted, broken and excess materials is helping Vancouver move towards becoming a zerowaste city. His growing list of sustainable materials include; cedar, fir, hardwood offcuts, used leather & elk hide remnants, acrylic, metal, acoustic felt, carpet and a range of material samples from interior designers. These materials are carefully, yet experimentally combined using a blend of hand crafting techniques together with the precision of the laser cutter. Colour, contrast and balance are used to elevate these materials into abstract aesthetical and visual feasts.
