David Gardner: 'Haunted by Paradise'
March 10, 2024
ACS member David Gardner’s solo exhibition Haunted by Paradise has opened at Wilder Gallery, London.

‘The images are anchored in the idea of living from the inside out. An inner glow projects outwards towards the viewer, a solitary figure peers out towards the viewer’s space and flowers grow and pierce through flesh. Something inside yearns to be liberated and everything tilts over the edge of a new threshold.’ – David Gardner.


The exhibition, which is presented in collaboration with Delphian Gallery, showcases a selection of Gardner’s latest large-scale works. Exploring the relationship between the human spirit and the natural world, Gardner’s paintings juxtapose the constricted human form with hyper-saturated and lush environments.


Until 27 Mar
